05/09/2014 - Called “an exercise in consolidation and continuity and craftsmanship” at the time, it’s clear now that John Mellencamp‘s ‘Big Daddy’ was instead a forebear to the stripped-down, more serious-minded recordings of his most recent era. Read More

(After the jump please see a larger version of each painting)

Four of John's paintings are included in New York City's ACA Galleries newest exhibit: Social Art In America: Then and Now.

"It is sometimes said that those who are creative in one field are also creative in another, and such is the case with John Mellencamp. Known primarily for his award-winning music, whose themes of working- class struggles and rural hardship are right in line with Social Realist art, Mellencamp is also a serious painter tackling serious themes. Uniting the Modernist and Realist traditions, Mellencamp’s canvases bristle with the anger and rage just under the shiny American veneer. "

The exhibit runs May 6 through June 27, 2014.
