Evan Mazellan's oil paintings explore injury notions, with mark-making methods traditional to the disciplines of drawing and printmaking and its manifestation in spiritual iconography. Mazellan's depictions simultaneously revel in and call into question the fragile framework of life and death.


The artist graduated with a degree in Illustration from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2013.  Mazellan’s paintings have been featured in solo exhibitions at Bunker East and Bunker West, curated by John Garcia (2021); Indiana Wesleyan University (2021); the Rockaway Artist Alliance in Queens, NY (2019); and Marion Design Co. in Marion, IN (2017); and in a two-person exhibition alongside artist Becca Shmuluvitz at Gallery Diorama in Brooklyn, NY (2020).  His work has been included in group exhibitions at the Rockaway Artist Alliance (2021), Shrine Gallery in New York City (2021), The Holy Art in London (2021) and Reis Studio in Queens, NY (2017).  Mazellan and his paintings have been published in print and online publications, including Architectural Digest, The Rockaway Times and The Wave.  Mazellan is currently attending Cranbrook Academy of Art for his MFA in Painting.
