From New York originally, Mel’s background in advertising has informed his colourful, abstract style.
Mel deliberately places colour on the canvas in an unrefined way, leaving obvious brush marks and texture. He inserts large geometric shapes into some pieces, making for bold, playful compositions. In others he drags bright colour down the canvas evoking a sense of rapid movement. People have likened these to fireworks or driving down a brightly lit street at night.
