Born in a Medium Sized Pennsylvanian Town.
From an early age, all Mellon could think of was becoming an artist and storyteller; infatuated with the myth and lore of writers and artists from an age long since past.
And for the last 20 years, Mellon has spent the time developing his craft as well as reaching inward toward the furthest depths.
Opting not to pursue art school in NY, Mellon pushed forward on his own - learning all he could from books, videos and observation.
Along the way, he dabbled in a variety of media, discovering aspects from each medium that could eventually be fine tuned to what would become his own voice and style - to what has been best described as Primitive Surrealistic Expression.
His works are of consciousness and observation , not just of the world around, but the the worlds unseen and the entirety of our collective history. Subjects and themes found in his portfolios are broad and open themselves to many interpretations - allowing the viewer or collector to find their own unique bond to the imagery. As Mellon learned early on, it is the viewer's (Observer's) understanding of artwork that gives Art all it's meaning.
In 2011 Mellon made the leap to focus on The Studio Full Time. Slowly , with aggressive marketing, perseverance, a lot of sacrifice - and, ultimately, patience,
he has grown a rooted online presence and has seen his Original Art Works and Prints collected by Private and Corporate Collectors around the world.
After living abroad from 2015 - 2019, Mellon returned to The Southwest of North America where he lives works out of his home Studio.
Mellon's works are in Private, Corporate and Government Collections across the globe. His work has also been Commissioned and Published as Album Covers , Fictional and Biographical Book Jackets , and also, on the cover of Science Journals.
