ABOUT > Process
A simple way to describe Mark's process would be Nordic/Celtic knots meeting a contemporary graffiti style.
Each individual piece is based on words that are then turned into an unbroken, interwoven line. Each word is carefully chosen and influences the shape in mind. The design is initially hand drawn, then recreated in a design program. Mark then digitally distorts the image to create an optical illusion within the design, which afterwords is cut out using a CNC laser machine. The piece is then worked on using hand chisels, painted and finished.
Work can take weeks, even months, to finish.
