Known for his photorealistic paintings and small pencil drawings, Martin Mull is a prolific American artist inspired by the visual culture and aesthetics of post-war America. Besides being a painter, Mull is also a successful actor, comedian, and singer. Drawing the inspiration from both lifestyle magazines and life experience, Mull adjusts the visual material, aiming to be against the frameworks of collective memory and cultural restlessness. Throughout his successful career in stand-up comedy, film and television, he is a confirmed satirist and his paintings face the comedy with the even amount of sorrow, pushing the limits beyond the irony to achieve a deeper meaning.
