Home grown in Melbourne, Mitch Walder is an artist who works out of The Arts Hole studio in Caulfield. An upbringing that involved mainly drawing on anything he could get his hands on, Walder was destined for an artistic career. After graduating from a Bachelor of Design Arts degree 2011 at the formerly known Australian Academy of Design he hit the ground running, forging a career in illustration, painting, graphic design, gallery installation and artist workshops. An internship at The Age beginning in 2010 proved to be a crucial stepping stone for an art practice that now hosts cliental such as Facebook, Adidas x Glue Store, Red Bull, Linked In, Lonely Planet, Splunk, Ray Ban x Boiler Room, AFL & White Night among many others.
Walder’s style lends itself to chaotic cartoon scenery with content often formed through a mix of observational & subconscious techniques. A vibrant colour palette washed over an entropic composition has been a signature display for Walder as he looks to develop this style into a number of different elds alongside painting and mural work including apparel, sculpture and animation.
