Mitchell Gilbert Messina is a south African based is a young artist based in Cape Town whose work reflects the world around him in a playful way. Using his sharp sense of humour and keen eye for irony, he has honed the craft of using minimal effort to create art that’s as fun as it is clever.
Whether through sculpture, video or performance, his work is always about making more with less – a valuable skill that should not be underestimated.
His research methods are just as refreshing. Basically, he observes idiosyncrasies, jots them down and then waits for the right time to turn these into art.
