He appeared on groundbreaking comedies like &quot;Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman&quot; and &quot;Fernwood Tonight.&quot; Known for playing Leon Carp on &quot;Roseanne,&quot; Mull has recently provided voiceovers on &quot;American Dad.&quot; But Mull maintains that his showbiz career was more accident than aspiration. And he&rsquo;s never given up his passion &ndash; art. His paintings are shown around the world but his latest exhibition is here in Chicago &ndash; the town where Mull was born. Mull walked Eight Forty-Eight's Alison&nbsp;Cuddy through the show with Mull. His paintings are an interesting mix of photo realism and abstraction. But Mull says it&rsquo;s the way he twists familiar images that best defines his style. <br /><br /><strong>Exhibition:<br /></strong><a href="http://www.hammergallery.com/Artists/Mull/mull.htm" target="_blank">Martin Mull</a><br />Carl&nbsp;Hammer Gallery<br />&nbsp;</p><p><iframe height="398" frameborder="0" width="601" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/16861150?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0&amp;color=c9000a"></iframe></p></p> Tue, 16 Nov 2010 15:37:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/martin-mull-moves-screen-canvas
