Mark Pearson

Mark is a contemporary figurative painter; the key elements in his pictures are light, space and movement.

He is well known for depicting Peckham where he has lived for nearly three decades. His paintings encapsulate the evolution of his neighbourhood, where he documents peopleinteracting with each other, in the streets, cafes and bars. Mark’s paintings start from simple observations he makes walking through the area; he records hisideas in small sketches and with photographs. He then works in the studio to paint with acrylic and ink on paper, or with oils on either canvas or recycled cardboard.
