Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Self Portrait is the story of sculpture, artist and designer Bill Mitchell whose experiments with materials and methods and his determination to produce magnificent works of art led to an amazizing career. In Self Portrait he describes how he saw the world as being saturated in color, seeing glamour and beauty in what could be dismissed as bleak London streets. He was determined to cover the world with sculptures, murals and decoration are main themes, as is his dislike of minimalism and the established art world . Included are stories about his discussions on art with Princess Margaret, his clashes with Prince Philip, his battles with Mohamed Al Fayed and the phenomenal success of the Egyptian Hall and Escalator at Harrods.

Self Portrait contains a vast array of illustrations of Bill's work and a true creative genius who invariably had a smile or comic story to offer, and whose energy carried projects to completion despite the many challenges.

Synopsis:

Self Portrait is the story of the sculpture, art and designs of Bill Mitchell, whose experiments with materials and methods still excite. He saw the world as being saturated in color, seeing glamour and beauty where others saw only the bleakness of city life. His determination to color the world led him to the U.S. during the 1980s, where he worked for the Bay Area Rapid Transit. He also worked for Mohammed Al Fayed, for whom he created the Egyptian Hall and the Egyptian Escalator at Harrods. Other major projects include the Civic Square in Honolulu. With 85 color photos and 132 b&w illustrations.
