Mark Mellon's Bio
Mark M. Mellon has been painting and creating artwork since 1996. After leaving school in 1998, he decided that learning the disciplines of being an artist worked best when it was self taught. He studied and learned through using books, information online and learning from local artists, writers and philosophers. Not only about art and its history, but also immersing himself into independent study of philosophy, psychology, mythology as well as just simply trying to live life as a human.
His artwork has always been an extension of his subconscious thoughts, imagination and an attempt to interpret the universal conscious field. Where he cannot communicate in words, he hopes to pass on images to make the viewers think and question, hopefully seeing something new about themselves and life.
Working in various and media, his work reflects surrealistic, abstract and expressionistic values with a presence all its own.The artist has shown in Nevada and California in group and solo exhibitions throughout his career. He is currently working and residing in Las Vegas, NV.
