Based in United Kingdom
Artist Mark Roberts was born in Birmingham, and was educated at the esteemed Moseley School of Art. His early career in retail design and development produced a number of interior design concepts for well known blue chip retailers. Mark’s real passion however, lay in painting. Following a number of successful exhibitions both in the U.K. and Europe, Mark turned professional in 2001 and has now established himself as progressive artist. His strong contemporary style has been popular with collectors and individuals looking for private commissions. The main inspiration for Mark’s work is the female form. The contrasts between light and shade feature strongly in his work, with colours forming shapes within shapes creating a bold contemporary look. Mark works within many media including pencil, crayon, pastel, watercolour, acrylic, oil and glass mosaic. A selection of Mark’s glass mosaics, paintings, drawings and limited edition prints are on permanent exhibition at The Provocative Art Studio, Fromes Hill, Ledbury. Mark is a member of The Northampton Guild of Designer Craftsmen, British Association of Modern Mosaics and The Guild of Erotic Artists.
