ABOUT CW MUNDY
C.W. Mundy, an American Impressionist Artist, was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. He graduated with a Fine Art Degree from Ball State University in Indiana in 1969 and then shortly thereafter traveled to California, making his home there through the 1970’s, painting, playing music, and working on his Masters of Fine Art at Long Beach State. In 1978, he returned home to Indiana, worked as a sports illustrator for more than a decade, then in the early 1990?s, took the challenge of painting in a more impressionistic style, going out of doors and painting “en plein air” and “from life”. This painting style led C.W. to a series of European Plein Air painting trips, beginning with a trip to France in 1995 and continuing up through the present. When not painting on location, C.W. paints in his studio, concentrating on Still Life and Figurative Work.
C.W. was invited in 2003 to become Master Signature Member? in the national organization? Oil Painters of America.? In 2007, C.W. achieved? Master Status in The
American Impressionist Society.? He is also a Signature Member of The American Society of? Marine Artists.
A Mid-Career Retrospective Exhibition was held for C.W. in 2001 at the Richmond Art Museum, Richmond, Indiana.? In 2003, International Artist Publishing (Sydney, Australia) published and internationally distributed the book Memoirs: Charles Warren Mundy, American Impressionist.
C.W. teaches workshops and lectures throughout the country, and in 2005-2006 taught in a unique mentorship program, En?Plein Air Masters, in France.
