welcome to the Louis Mendez website


Louis Mendez was a versatile artist in many media.  His one-of-a-kind works explored human and animal forms with equal intensity in large scale sculpture, graphic images, mask designs, and traditional ceramics.  Born in New York City, Mendez held BFA and MFA degrees in industrial design from Alfred University.  The artist was a recipient of a Louis Comfort Tiffany award for design and development of large-scale ceramic art in architectural settings.  Although he always maintained an independent studio and active exhibition schedule, Mendez also held professional positions in both industry and higher education.  His work is included in numerous public and private collections throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia.
