Outsider "artist" never had an art lesson or studied art, never even done any art until the covid lockdown in spring 2020; my focus had been music (without much commercial success) for much of the previous 40 yrs, with nearly 20 yrs writing editing and selling my west ham football fanzine "on the terraces", plus more than 10 yrs studying and practising astropsychology (clients inc.derek jarman kate bush and diamanda galas), magick, freemasonary and various esoteric subjects. I am 61
Self-taught artist. Have been creating art since a young age and recently got back into the flow of it during the pandemic. For me art is a form of expression and beauty. I have developed my techniques through online videos and self-experimentation over the years. I enjoy experimenting with colours & textures to capture the essence of different emotions the way I see it.
I am a self-taught artist born and raised in London. Having grown up in the ’80s, I was always in awe of how the bold and vibrant colours of street art and graffiti could brighten up the most subdued spaces in the darkest parts of the city. I create Abstract / Street Art and Digital Artwork. The daring use of bold colours excite me – my work speaks with colour and emotion. I create art that brightens lives and spaces and is also distinguishable from other artist’s work.

I am a self-taught Artist born and raised in London. Having grown up in the bright 80’s, I was always in awe of how the bold and vibrant colours of street art and graffiti could brighten up the most subdued spaces in the darkest parts of the city. My art is hugely personal to me. The process is both spontaneous and emotional. I have an ‘all or nothing’/determined personality and subconsciously this energy projects into my work. Creating art is an escape and brings me to a place of tranquility.
Since my childhood, I have always loved Art. Getting to Art School was a big step with family issues coming from a rural working-class background. I had to move from fine art to a commercial course for financial reasons and have had a long commercial career as an Art Director, Writer and becoming a Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising. Always involved with the Arts and other forms of creative enlightenment, I was elected as a Fellow of The Royal Society of Arts in 2012.
I'm an artist who vindicates the facts and intends to represent in the simplest and most graphic way, the synthesis between two elements that by themselves are contrary but if put together add greater meaning. Me works are always visually simple but impressive, using plain colors and playfulness. Often minimalist but granting room for interpretation so that in return the observer formulates diverse opinions and achieves enrichment.

Mark Vessey is a British photographic artist whose work is inspired by the idea of creating art from collections of everyday objects.

I`ve had a passion for painting and crafts for as long as I can remember and one day ended up selling pieces to friends who wouldn`t take "you don`t have to pay me" as an answer. My favourite pastime was slowly turning into something that, not only did I enjoy doing more than anything else but had subsequently taken up all of my time (and pay cheque!)
I created this over the course of 11 weeks (total of 178 hours) 10 weeks of that was drawing the city in ballpoint pen and fine marker. The 2nd longest I?ve spent on a work ever but also the first time I?ve combined photo-realistic pen drawing with abstract paintwork (at the top which obviously represents heaven).

I believe my art is more interesting in itself than a presentation about me. But here is a little about me and my art anyway. I was born in Enkoping and have been drawing since I was one year old and been painting all of my life. I started more daily with oil colors when I was 12 years old and then draw 2-3 hours a day and painted.
Since the early 1980s, my work has involved the creation of conceptually based socio-political paintings and drawings. I started by adding text by hand onto my paintings. Hand written language has now become a very prominent feature in my work. Even when I cover it you can still see words within the texture of the work.
My work is primarily a combination of painting, collage and decollage (ripping, tearing or sanding away at built up surfaces to reveal layers below). I am a big fan of haiku, the finding of profound meaning in modest things and the gentle playfulness that helps us view everyday life with fresh eyes.

I am an artist/educator living in London. While I work with a number of different materials, my work is primarily representational. I consider myself to be a figurative artist.

To me, my art is the safest and most authentic way to express myself to the people surrounding me. Trips to foreign countries, either concrete or in my phantasy, are the source of my ideas.

According to my parents, i have been drawing since i could hold a pencil, a quiet, content child, happy to spend hours scribbling, from paper to almost anything i could make a mark on, school books, vehicles and walls, the list goes on... I suppose my style ended up as a product of not listening to anyone, especially my art teachers and doing what i wanted to do.
