Lee Mullican (December 2, 1919 in Chickasha, Oklahoma – July 8, 1998 in Santa Monica, California) was a painter and art teacher, and an influential member of the Dynaton Movement.[1] He moved to San Francisco in 1947, and was part of a 1951 exhibition called "Dynaton" held at the San Francisco Museum of Art.[2] Mullican was a member of the UCLA art faculty from 1962 to 1990.[3] He married Luchita Hurtado; their son Matt Mullican is a New York City based artist; their son John Mullican is a Los Angeles based writer and director. He is represented by Marc Selwyn Fine Art in Los Angeles, California.
