“Mellencamp paints handsomely grotesque portraits in oil that are as solemn and stirring as his hit songs are catchy and inspirational -- depicting existential scenes and human beings ridden with the angst of the everyday” notes critic Doug McClemont..."

Bob Morris visited John at his art studio in Indiana to speak with him about his life as a painter,  his development of his paintings and assemblages, and to view his latest works that will be on exhibit at the ACA Galleries in New York City April 26th - June 2nd.  Read this fascinating interview on John Mellencamp Paintings and Assemblages.

"Like the characters in the Steinbeck and Faulkner novels he admired in his youth and the dustbowl inflected songs of Woody Guthrie, he paints about alienation and struggle more than joy or ease..."

i don't think JM's paintings would sell within the average person's budget though I have not inquired to prove this to be true.  Maybe the team that admins this site could pass along to John a sincere wish and plea?  JM could consider this possibly as a charity fundraising venture of choice if further motivation is needed.  i have dreamed of and would love to own something that JM painted. 

He said in his Jane Pauley interview he always needs to be creating something daily.  Could JM create miniature art pieces, small paintings or even pendant pieces that could be strung up on leather cord of his characters or thoughts?  This might be something those that love JM's art but could not afford a gallery piece could manage to own.  How about it John?  The sale could be launched from his art website too?!
