Born and raised in the Melbourne, Mendo is a professional full time Abstract Artist of 9 years. His precocious talent started by drawing as a child which led to street art, graphic design and industrial design, eventually developing to abstract art. Like most people Mendo chased the formula of life of getting good grades at University for a good job. Even after achieving honours in Microbiology, Mendo went back to his real passion, ART. His great learnings during his thesis in a laboratory taught him to work autonomously and gave him the love for experimenting. These experiments are what you see in Mendo’s works.


ARTIST STATEMENT

I once chased the formula in life, get good grades, go to University, get good grades, get a good job. While an honours degree may help me get work, it didn’t give me the life I wanted. I threw it all away to go back to original passion, ART.

I did learn two great things while working on my thesis in a laboratory. How to work autonomously and the love for experimenting. This has made my career as an artist so much more rewarding and happier.

I started to sell artworks online due to compliments from friends and then threw away my day job to open my first market stall at the Victorian Art Centre Market. Here I sold artworks to the Chairman of the Singapore Art Gallery and many other international clients. I then focused on custom art because it didn’t exist.

Now hotels, businesses, families, stores and random Google searchers find me online.

It’s the most rewarding career I could ever do. I make people happy and I love creating art.
