About Philip Mueller

Best known for the dark, surreal universe of his paintings, Philip Mueller also produces sculpture, installation, and performance work, and has explored subjects as diverse as pop culture icons, Icelandic shamans, and members of TV’s Addams Family. Painting with various techniques and brushstrokes, Mueller characterizes his style as “romantic-anarchical, complex, and greedy,” and has said: “My work is a constant trial of giving an imaginable coexistence to the extremes society creates.”
