Larry Mitchell is a self-taught artist who grew up in Northampton, Western Australia. It is here that he developed an interest in the coastal environment, where he spent his formative years beachcombing, fishing and diving up and down the west coast. 

 

As a leading Western Australian artist Larry Mitchell is renowned for his panoramic seascapes, inspired by his passion for the environment and its preservation. In an ongoing attempt to record the places and cultures that are under threat by global warming and the homogenizing influences of economic and cultural globalization, Larry continues to record this on his large - scale realist paintings.

 

As an exclusive collaborative with Larry Mitchell and Yallingup Galleries, a series of Limited Edition Prints of 50 are released periodically from select original paintings. Through Conservation International, supporting the work of Dr Mark Erdmann there is a commitment to donating a portion of the proceeds of each sale to the Whale Shark Research Programme off the Papua New Guinea coastline.
