Fiftyseven is the pseudonym of Steve Mitchell, a graphic designer, illustrator and printmaker based in London. Favouring a strong metallic palette of gold and silver, on an often sumptuous, shadowy background. His prints bring together an intoxicatingly rich mix of the quasi-occult and masonic. The opulent and occasionally dark subject matter of skulls and insects form an aesthetic he calls ‘Neo-Victorian Maxilmalism’. All this brought together creates a lavish combination of decoration, pattern and symmetry.

Fiftyseven exhibited at Of Cabbages and Kings in 2015 in Fiftyseven + Chris Homer a joint show with Chris Homer.
