About the Publisher
Mario M. Muller has 29 years under his belt as an Artist, Curator and Dealer. He generally knows what he likes.
As a painter and sculptor, he has had over 20 solo exhibitions on both coasts and several in the flyover states of Illinois, Kentucky, and Indiana. His most recent solo exhibition was titled UltraBlack at Rudolph Blume Fine Art in Houston, TX. Before that Muller debuted a comprehensive retrospective at a Private Museum in southeastern Germany near the Czech border. His work is held in Fortune 500 companies including Twitter, Deutsche Bank, Radio Shack, Banana Republic, LG&E, National City Bank, and Pfizer to name a few.
Muller holds a degree in Film Making and Fine Art from Northwestern University where his primary mentor was Ed Paschke. He’s also attended master classes with Roy Lichtenstein, Wayne Thiebaud, Esteban Vicente and Elaine DeKooning.
Muller has been the recipient of numerous public and private commissions, the latest of which is an MTA Arts for Transit commission for 12 Glass Windscreen Panels for a subway station in the Bronx, New York. Muller’s Murals at the Louisville International Airport and the Kentucky Center for the Arts were early milestones to an ongoing impressive career. He is represented at Mary Ryan Gallery in New York City, Brenda Deemer Gallery in Louisville, KY and Rudolph Blume Fine Art in Houston, TX.
A born and bred New Yorker, Muller lives and works in Los Angeles with his wife and seven-year old son Wolfgang.
As a writer of cultural criticism, his subjects have been Painting, Photography and Film. His movie reviews appeared regularly in several Mid-western publications in the 1990’s while his art criticism has been exclusively published in New York and Los Angeles.
Dovetailing neatly with his literary interests, Muller has curated a number of exhibitions for corporate, gallery and non-for-profit settings. Essays have accompanied most of his shows.
As a private dealer and art consultant he’s advised both institutional and private clients on the contemporary fine art scene and career trajectories. He is available for art centric tours of several cities and international art fairs.
And as an educator he has taught as a guest lecturer at School for the Visual Arts, Art Center, International Center for Photography, and The 92nd Street Y.
