Michelle Mildenhall

Michelle Mildenhall is a UK-based mixed-media artist with a provocative approach to portraiture. Her instantly recognisable pieces are made from sheet latex which she combines with stylised imagery to seduce observers into a world of disconcerting beauty and mystique.

Michelle’s Education and Early Career

Michelle was born in Wiltshire and studied Textiles and Surface Patterns at Somerset College of Arts. During her schooling, Michelle became fascinated by movements such as Pop Art, styles
like Street Art and erotic illustrators including Aubrey Beardsley, paving the way for her passion for decadence, sexuality and contemporary feminism. Following her studies, she spent several years working as a Commercial Graphic Artist in London. Before long, her aching passion for textiles, graphic design and latex inspired her to create something totally unique and unheard of in the art world.

Style and Approach

Guided by themes of sex, greed and fetishism, Michelle meticulously and laboriously recreates iconic female characters and historical figures such as Margaret Thatcher in Iron Maiden and Mary Magdalene in Bloody Mary using latex. Her process includes cutting the various latex shapes by hand before applying a thinning agent. The pieces are then recontextualised in fabulously erotic and ironic portraits. While the latex conceptualisation stands out as an entirely modern and subversive approach to art, her use of bold, block colours alone is enough to arouse the senses.

Press and Exhibitions

Michelle’s trademark niche has been lauded worldwide, exhibited in top global galleries including the Saatchi Gallery, London; La Luz De Jesus Gallery, Los Angeles and Sin City Gallery in Las Vegas. Michelle has also been featured on TimeOut, ITV News and Art Republic.
