We are currently featuring art by...

Anthony Mitchell

1965 - 2014


Native American artist, Anthony Mitchell, passed away recently but, thanks the assistance of his partner, David Pfersich, the Roosterfish is pleased and proud to feature this posthumous exhibition of just a few of the artist’s remarkable, erotic works.  Originally from Oklahoma, Anthony moved to Los Angeles in 2010 to be with David.

Anthony’s artistic interests were fostered early on by his parents who were artist themselves. Given his Seminole and Creek Indian ancestry, Anthony attended the Jones Academy Indian Boarding school in Hartshorne, OK. He then went on to attend college in Muskogee, OK and Lawrence, KS; graduating from the Verner Fine Art School for the Gifted.

Whether working in oil, acrylic, pencil, pen and ink or watercolor, Anthony's diverse talent and choice of subject matter let him to shift seamlessly between modern multicultural and traditional themes as well as his gay erotic work featured here. That ability, coupled with his remarkable attention to detail, garnered him recognition, awards and honors at numerous prestigious show and exhibitions.  Anthony's homoerotic works have been shown by Tom of Finland and appeared in numerous magazines including Adelante, Character and Men Addicted.

Probably the best description of Anthony’s work however, is by the artist himself who once described it as always having an “underlying comment” social or otherwise. He then went on to say, “I am influenced by anima, music, news, media and books however, most of all by people with their unrecognized uniqueness. After all, the human race is one big circus free for admission.”  All we can add in response Anthony is… Thank you for inviting us to your wonderfully artistic and erotic circus!

The Roosterfish will be displaying several of Anthony Mitchell's homoerotic works through the end of April, so please come down and check them out.  You can also view other pieces on the  Anthony Mitchell Art Studio Facebook PageFor information on these pieces or to see even more of his work, please call David Pfersich at 626.208.7434 or email
