Marlon Mullen at JTT
A self-taught artist with autism spectrum disorder, Mullen is one of several names associated with the Bay Area’s NIAD Center For Art & Disabilities who have received wider art world recognition for their unique artistic practices—which, in Mullen’s case, entails exuberant paintings based on lifestyle, news and contemporary art periodicals. The work here, created over the last two years, focuses on art magazine covers, which, in Mullen’s hands, become thickly impastoed abstractions.
