Mark is a British award winning sculptor who has had a remarkable career so far; winning the Midlands Open and the Xerxes Sculpture Prize in 2015.
In the same year he was elected to the British Society of Sculptors (MRSS). In 2017 Mark was shortlisted for the Open Contemporary Young Artist Award run by the Biscuit Factory gallery in Newcastle, shortlisted for the international Rise Art Prize and long-listed for The Secret Art Prize by Curious Duke Gallery in London.
Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, Mark can make industrial metal appear fluid, malleable and delicate. He continues to study different metals, looking at ways to manipulate and add movement to the material, and over the past 2 years has been developing ways in which neon or LEDs can complement his sculptures, adding movement to a piece and catching the viewer’s eye.
Mark has a strong academic background in art, having studied a BA Hons (International) in Contemporary Art Practice at Leeds University and more recently an MA in European Arts Practice at Kingston University, Surrey.
To date he has now exhibited in over 60 exhibitions, solo and group, and has a strong following from collectors both in the UK and abroad.
Mark’s work is privately collected in the UK, Europe, Hong Kong and the USA.
