Mark Spain was born in 1962. He studied art at the Medway College of Art and Design concentrating on graphics, illustrations, life drawing and printmaking.
Mark Spain initiall worked as a freelance illustrator producing originals for art posters, book covers and greeting cards. His technique included airbrushing to create a highly refined and polished look. In 1984 Mark's interest in printmaking as an alternative discipline developed and he established his own art studio focus on making original etchings.
Inspiration for the early art works of Mark Spain came from the natural unspoilt areas of rural Britain. After travelling abroad Mark's interest in wildlife was further stimulated and he created a series of etchings taken from drawings of various game reserves in Kenya. Following the storms in 1997, Kew Gardens commissioned Mark Spain to produce a limited edition prints of the gardens to help raise funds for restorations of the worst hit areas. He has also undertaken commissions for the NatWest Bank and The Dorchester Hotel
Mark Spain is a creative artist constantly experimenting with different subjects and techniques. This has lead him to develop other forms of imagery from abstract to figurative. Speaking about his art work, Mark comments, "Having experimented with many forms of imagery in recent years, figurative work has been the most challenging and satisfying. I enjoy the challenge of expanding ideas based on the female form. Movement is a key to many of my pieces as well as form, texture and colour. My main goals are always to create a certain amount of 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 picture. Pictures I believe must have a life of their own to allow an ongoing interest."
Mark Spain art works have been exhibited in numerous art exhibitions and one man shows including the prestigious Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Show, The 20th Century British Art Fair and The Barbican Contemporary Print Fair. His art prints and limited edition prints are held in private art collections in Spain, Belgium, France, New Zealand, Australia, Holland, Hong Kong, United States and Canada.
