Majesty Meets Ravens - Mendelson Joe

Regular price$4,600.00

Born Birrell Josef Mendelson in Toronto, Ontario, Mendelson Joe was a self-taught tour de force in multiple artistic disciplines including music, painting and writing.

Mendelson Joe painted each and every day until Parkinson’s Disease took away that facility in 2022. Along with making music, painting was Joe’s way of understanding the world and coping and celebrating human life and nature. Joe’s subjects include landscapes, portraits, and political and social commentary. Joe’s paintings are vivid, colourful, sometimes playful, sometimes scathing representations of the world according to Joe. Joe’s bold colour palette was much like the man himself – larger than life in impact. Unforgettable.

        Mendelson Joe

        1975 marked the beginning of Joe’s career as a painter.  Joe’s unstoppable creative nature sought an alternative outlet from music as he became disenchanted with the business aspect of the music business (as always – ahead of his time). Joe recounted that he got his start painting when he found some paints in the garbage and thought he would give it a try. 

        Joe sold his artwork himself for many years from to various different Toronto studios with occasional representation from several Toronto commercial galleries. In 2000, Joe moved north from Toronto to an area adjacent to the west side of Algonquin Park called the Almaguin Highlands.
