British Artist
Limited edition collagraphs

(b.1962) Kent, UK

A vigorous and creative artist, Mark Spain is always experimenting with different subjects and techniques which are then applied to an amazing variety of images from traditional landscapes to dazzling collagraphs.

He trained in technical graphics at Medway College of Art before setting up a printmaking studio in Kent producing original etchings.

In October 1987 he was commissioned to produce limited edition etchings of Kew Gardens and has since undertaken many other commissions, with clients ranging from National Westminster Bank to The Dorchester Hotel.

Mark has exhibited in numerous exhibitions and shows including the prestigious Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Show, The 20th Century British Art Fair and The Barbican Contemporary Print Fair.

Since being published in 2000, many of his original paintings have been published as limited editions and silk screens. Mark’s work has been exhibited in galleries all over the UK and can be found in private collections around the world including Spain, Belgium, France, New Zealand, Australia, Holland, Hong Kong, Japan, USA and Canada.

Speaking about his work, Mark comments: “Having experimented with many forms of imagery in recent years, figurative work has been the most challenging and satisfying. My main goals are always to create movement within the image, with particular emphasis on setting a mood and atmosphere. I would like the viewer to be intrigued as to the possible thoughts of the subject, which can only add to the effect of the piece.”
