Carlos Mendieta

Artist + Carlos Mendieta

Originally from Miami, FL, I went to art school in Sarasota, FL at the Ringling School of Art and Design and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, Dept. of Computer Animation. From there, I began a career in animation working at several studios around the country and finally ending up at Nintendo’s Retro Studios in Austin, TX for 13 years. All the while, I continued working on my art and comics.

Somewhere in the middle there, I began to visit New Orleans for shows and vacation and the city seduced me in a way no other place ever had. I started visiting multiple times a year, for several years, before I decided that I had to live and work here.

I’m happy that I did….

Now in my 3rd year living here, I am a senior character animator, making video games for Microsoft/InXile Entertainment and I’ve curated and exhibited work in several art shows all over town. New Orleans has provided everything I had hoped for and continues to surprise and amaze. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Carlos Mendieta is a New Orleans artist living and working in Marigny neighborhood.
