20th Century Artists - Ed Mell

b. 1942

Ed Mell


Mell is an American Post-War and Contemporary painter based in the Southwest of the US. He is inspired by the ever-changing skies of the desert Southwest. He is known for his paintings, posters, and bronze sculptures depicting cowboys, steers, and sunsets. Mell emphasizes the graphic elements and strips away details that do not serve his vision. His works do not come on the market often. “Shadowed Walls” is an important piece, having been used to promote a show for the Long Beach Museum of Art and came to us through Capsule Auctions out of NY.
