Jack Mendenhall

Jack Mendenhall (b. 1937, Ventura, California) is a California-based painter, whose interest in printed advertising imagery led to his inclusion in the Photorealist movement. In his early years, Mendenhall created paintings of curated luxurious home interiors, which he used as a subtle societal critique. His later paintings evolved to include optimistic depictions of exotic resorts that feature pools, palm trees and relaxation. Mendenhall’s prolific career spans over 50 years. His work is in the collections of the University of California, Berkeley and the Oakland Museum. Mendenhall lives and works in Oakland, CA.
