PROVIDENCE, RI.- Rhode Island School of Design presents an exhibition by American artist Martin Mull, on view February 15 through March 16, 2020.

Born in Chicago, Martin Mull received a BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 1965 and an MFA from RISD in 1967. He also studied classical painting at the American Academy in Rome, Italy.

Mull began his career as an artist creating hyper realistic scenes of domestic life. His work was grouped with such super realist painters as Richard Estes and Ralph Goings.

By the late 1990s, Mull moved towards a less defined but still representational technique. Feeling that the world looks better with his eyeglasses off, he has incorporated this informed myopia into his most recent work. The narratives in this exhibition both question and provide links to a simpler time in the immediate post-WWII era of the American Dream.

Mull has exhibited his paintings at major museums and galleries in London, Zurich, Seoul, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

With American Dreams, Mull is thrilled to return to RISD to show a group of his paintings and meet with emerging artists. He describes his years at RISD as a lot of fun—a great opportunity to take inspired risks and work hard at what would become his life’s work.
