Born and raised in Bradford, England, Mark has always combined music and art. Trained in graphics, he has also designed album sleeves for his own rock ‘n’ roll band Terrorvision.

Mark has an ever developing style taking influences from old school tattoos and modern day street culture. Brought up on the likes of Sailor Jerry, Ed Hardy and Vince Ray, Mark’s love of kitsch and low brow art is obvious.

With outlets in Britain, Sweden and Florida, Mark’s work is rapidly cropping up in cool bars, funky apartments and burlesque clubs worldwide.

Mark finds painting like song writing has no boundaries, pictures can evolve from a simple idea, a sequence of colours or an entire vision. Like Mark’s guitar playing these paintings are strikingly colourful and flamboyantly loud.
