Biography from Boston Art Club:
Harold Mesibov, (1928- )

Mesibov was born in Philadelphia, Pa.  He was the son of an artist and younger brother of the artist Hugh Mesibov.  Both of the Mesibov brothers studied at the Graphic Sketch Club in Philadelphia.  They both also were personally connected with Albert Barnes and both studied painting at the Barnes Foundation.

Harold Mesibov left Philadelphia to fight in the Korean War.  When he returned, he continued his art studies at the Tyler School of Art and the Philadelphia Museum School of Art.

By 1953 Mesibov had chosen the style of Geometric Abstraction which he then developed throughout his career.  In his early career, he signed his works 'Mesa' in order to separate himself from the fame of his brother Hugh.  Later in his life, after his own work became known, he returned to his full signature, 'Harold Mesibov'.

He ran a very successful private art school in Philadelphia and was an officer of the Philadelphia Chapter of Artists Equity International.  His work was exhibited from the 1950's onward in NYC and Philadelphia avant-garde venues.  His one-man shows include: Panoros gallery, NYC; The Philadelphia Gallery; and The Springs, East Hampton, NY.  His group shows include: PAFA; Tyler University, Penn State University; Philadelphia Art Alliance; University City Arts League; Philadelphia Abstract Artist; The Plastic Club; The Pyramid Club; Artists Equity, Philadelphia; Philadelphia Arts Festivals; and The Medici Gallery, Miami, FL.

According to Mesibov, he, "painted in an a la prima fashion and put the abstracted figure in spatial arrangements".
