Anil Mistry is a mixed media artist living in Berkhamsted, UK. He is inspired by urban environments and landscapes, science fiction literature and music.
After a long-standing interest in art and design, Anil began to experiment in his late teens with typography, graphic design and photography, making gig flyers by layering imagery using photocopiers, scissors and glue. Later, software such as Photoshop and Illustrator became his tools of choice for compositions, starting a commercial career in digital graphic design.
He is now creating art combining his own photography from trips around the world, spray paints, stencils, acrylics and screen printing, to create visually striking mixed media collage art and occasional light-hearted, humorous artwork. Anil’s art features stylistically unusual, misfit and often overlooked elements from street furniture and urban environments, merging them to create beautiful compositions of unseen landscapes, rich in texture and depth. Each piece of art tells its own story, of towns, cities and people in constant transition.
