Nathan Mellott is an American figurative and symbolist painter.

He is from a specific culture but no specific place, being born into an itinerant military officer’s family. Coupled with a fascination for the beauty and expressive capacity of the human body, restlessness led him to the pencil and page early on. Born in the heart of the Louisiana Bayou he was always on the road. He has since lived in New York, Los Angeles, London, Hawaii, Taipei, Daegu, Florence and Prague.

Mellott’s paintings are vibrantly colored and continuously experimental – oscillating between mediums and bouts of exacting precision and lively expressionism. He is also a sculptor, muralist, writer, and nationally published portrait photographer. His paintings have appeared twice for review in American Art Collector Magazine.
