Charles Mundy

United States

C.W. Mundy was born (1945)  and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A. He graduated with a Fine Art Degree and a Secondary Education Teaching Degree from Ball State University (IN.) and then later worked on a Masters of Fine Art at Long Beach State (CA).

From an early age, Mundy demonstrated a propensity for drawing and athletics.  In 1978, he combined his love for art and sports and worked as a sports illustrator for over a  decade.  In the early 1990’s, Mundy took on the challenge of painting in the impressionistic style, “en plein air” and “from life". This painting style led Mundy to a series of European painting trips, and also frequent "plein air" trips to the coasts and harbors of the U.S.A. When at home in Indianapolis, CW paints Figurative and Still Life works in his Studio in the historic Stutz Building.

Mundy was invited in 2003 to Master Signature Membership in the national Oil Painters of America. In 2007, he achieved Master Status in The American Impressionist Society. In 2013,  Mundy was invited to Signature Membership in the prestigious California Art Club. He was honored in 2015 to be elected as Fellow in the American Society of  Marine Artists. Recent international awards include “Certificate of Excellence” from the Portrait Society International Annual Portrait Competition (2016, 2018),  "Finalist" in Portraiture, Still Life & Landscape Categories, Art Renewal Center International ARC Salon (2009-2018), and 2nd Place in Still Life Category and Honorable Mention in Landscape Category, Art Renewal Center International ARC Salon (2012/2013).

In 2018, Mundy was invited to be the inaugural "Artist In Residence" at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis / National Art Museum of Sport for the 2018/2019 year.

C.W. Mundy is represented by Eckert &  Ross Fine Art (IN), Castle Gallery (IN), Gallery 1261 (CO), Guarisco Gallery  (DC).
