Bio
Originally from Union City, NJ, Eduardo Mendieta has been living in Florida for the last 26 years. His passion for the arts started at a young age, painting graffiti on abandoned buildings and walls. This opened his mine to playing with the idea of scale and design, and also the concept of public art. Now locally known as EMO for painting large-scale mural utilizing brush & roller, paint sprayer and spray paint technique, this passion developed into a blend of raw urban art and graphic design that has become my signature style. In recent years, Eduardo has gained recognition creating many large-scale murals and curating projects in West Palm Beach and throughout South Florida. Some of the mural programs Eduardo has been a featured artist in are, 46 for XLVI Superbowl Indianapolis Mural Project; Downtown West Palm Beach Stairwell Mural Project; Northwood Village Mural Project, West Palm Beach; Downtown Hollywood Mural Project; Broward 100 Mural Project; the Walls Project, Baton Rouge; Canvas West Palm Beach and Biscayne Green, Miami. Eduardo has also painted large-scale public mural for the Cities of West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Hallandale Beach, Ocala, Delray Beach, Bradenton, Riviera Beach, Knoxville, and Chattanooga TN. He has shown work in numerous galleries throughout South Florida, most recently part of the group show X Marks the Spot at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.
