William Mitchell was a prolific contributor to post-war public art. His striking abstract reliefs include those for the Harlow Water Gardens, the Lee Valley Water Company offices and the Catholic cathedrals in Liverpool and Bristol. He talks about his career and work, including his time at London County Council in the 1960s as a consultant on decorative murals and finishes for the many public housing projects and restorations of the period.
William Mitchell is best known for his large scale concrete murals and public works of art from the 1960s and 1970s. Many of his works are now being recognised for their artistic merit and contemporary historic value, and have been given listed status.
