Biography

Translation in progress

Mark Charlton was born in Margate in 1976. He studied at the North East Wales Institute of Art and Design, gaining a BA Hons in Animation Design in 2001.

After spending many productive years working as a freelance animator and motion designer primarily in the music industry, he has devoted his time to developing his own style in 2D mixed media work.

His recent bodies of work are an abstract combination of screen print, painting and collage, which allows the exploration of surface texture and graphical composition. He takes inspiration from Science Fiction Novella from the 1950’s and 1960’s in which he embraces colour and shape and amalgamates with a contemporary gritty urban feel.

His work is energetic and spontaneous, using multiple layers, which are built up over a substantial period of time, until a final composition is realised and refined. He finds a unique excitement in this layered approach which sees screen print forced to react with painted and collaged surfaces. Multiple techniques are used to decay and age the surface, which culminates in a final piece that has a striking first impression and a gentle beauty within its close up detail. Mark currently lives and works in Sussex.
