Mad Swirl is excited to welcome the talented Mitchell Pluto to the Mad Gallery, with vibrantly crafted collage illustrations that unfold like fragments of a long-forgotten dream. Pluto’s work is a dynamic fusion of abstract shapes and enigmatic faces – there’s something almost hieroglyphic about them, though each piece is composed of layers far more advanced than the art of our ancient ancestors. Still, there’s something about Pluto’s work that feels like it’s beckoning to be examined and understood, like it’s got something to tell us if we’re paying attention. Suffice it to say, we’re captivated! ~ Madelyn Olson
