Deep in the pandemic days of 2020, artist Hayley Mitchell was tasked with ideating a mural for Soho House Austin. Intrigued by bringing a utilitarian space to life, she began the creative process in her studio with a simple sketch.
Isolation afforded her the time to ruminate and concentrate on the ‘concepts of togetherness and collaboration,’ Mitchell shares, ‘that’s really the foundation of the work itself.’
