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 describeibed as Primitive Surrealistic Expression.
His works are of consciousness and observation , not just of the world around, but 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.
While Mellon publicly refrains from discussing the personal aspects of his life, his work is undeniable influenced and guided by his years of battle with depression and bipolar disorder.
