About the Artist

(b. 1991) is an American artist who divides his time between
Manila, Philippines, New York, NY,and Belleville, PA. Mernin received his

B.F.A from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2014. Mernin’s large-
scaled paintings are designed using an intuitive approach that seeks to

translate particular visual encounters. Atmospheric forms are suggested
as fragments, colliding in rapid succession until a surprising image inadver
tently reveals itself. Dynamic color relationships absorb spontaneous
structures, which establish seductive, unstable compositions that both
command and retain attention. Recent solo exhibitions include Every
Now and Again, Altro Mondo, Manilla (2019) and Lansgage, Kanto Gallery,
Manila (2018).
