Raul J Mendez

SIC TRANSIT GLORIA MUNDI (2008-2023) is a small selection of paintings and drawings executed over 15 years. While some of the paintings happened in relatively short order, others were continuously changed, layered, developed and struggled with during all those years. 2 of these were finally completed in the weeks leading to this exhibition. There are nine or 10 more not included in this exhibition, despite being on the verge of nearing completion.

Raul was born in Caracas, Venezuela. He received his BFA in Painting & Drawing from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 1997. He lives and maintains his studio against a forest in Portland, OR, and supports his art habits by working as a 767 pilot for a global shipping company. Raul’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and can be found in public and private collections.
