Artist Information

D.R. Mullins is truly a man of infinite variety. A pillar of the arts community of Southwest Virginia, his long career as an artist has touched many aspects of the creative culture of the region, from his murals adorning prominent buildings to his mentorship of a new generation of Abingdon artists. Heavily influenced by his own mentor, Southwest Virginia philosopher-artist Fred Carter, Mullins’ works are as varied as the artist’s ideas, skills, and opinions. His art, ranging from sculptures to paintings, are all made up of intricate visual musings of line and symmetry, anchored in Appalachian imagery, Buddhist philosophy, and Mullins’ own often witty, always pointed critiques of the human condition.
