Mark had been an engineer but after having been made redundant he decided to take a Fine Art course at Bradford School of Art.
Having had no previous formal experience with painting this course gave him the chance to improve his technical abilities through study and practice.
Most of his inspiration comes from Pop Art and the 1060’s school of Photo Realists.
His work references our popular cultures, communication media, such as newspapers, film and advertising. But it is the use of paints that gives him the greatest pleasure.
