About The Artist
~ Within expressions you see a truth inside the soul of Humanity. ~
International Artist, Mark M. Mellon's art work dictates the expression of man and the beast exploring our role and purpose in this universe. Narrations in his imagery are stories of love and heartbreak to tragedy and loss - and of course - the never ending battle of dualism of self.
Spending the last Twenty Years developing his skill, his work takes inspiration from Primitive Art work, philosophy, astrology, religion, personal reflection and always finds courage and ideas from a various assortment of modern artists - old and new. Mellon brings together a harmony of imagery styled in an abstract and surreal way. Working with paint, ink and sculpture, Mellon has created a world and environment that encourages viewers to enter and engage with the imagery and find meanings all their own.
His Works have been used in television and films, album artwork, in some hotels on the west coast of America you can find his works - as well as original works collected in Private Collections around the world.
Mellon has taken residence for the last five years in Çanakkale, Turkey,
( A city that was once known as the ancient city of Troy), where he married his wife, a photographer, and are planning to return to America together when the time is right. For now, the inspiration and charm of this ancient city and this beautiful culture have not worn off.
Mellon was born in 1980 in a Pennsylvanian Town.
Mellon works out of his home studio located on a breezy hill in Çanakkale.
