Mark is a 26 year old Dublin born artist and art teacher. Having had an interest in art from an early age Mark went on to complete a number of commissioned works and exhibitions prior to entering Crawford College of Art & Design where he would complete a Fine Art Degree in Addition to a Masters in Art & Design Education.
During this time Mark has staged a number of solo exhibitions in both Cork and Dublin as well as being included in numerous selected group shows featuring a range of media including painting, installation and film.
At present Mark is currently involved in a number of local exhibitions while also teaching secondary school art in Balbriggan.
Through a variety of media including painting, installation and film, I seek to explore the superficiality of modern day society through the implementation of an imaginative and often surreal approach. Generally I attempt to explore areas such as consumerism and social media through an approach that, although surreal, remains grounded in reality.
