The Art of Mark Sibley

LUCY - oil on various canvases - 200cm x 171cm
I wanted to show you some of the fantastic work artist Mark Sibley produces.
I first saw his work when we exhibited together in a group show at The Brick Lane Gallery, I was fascinated by his drawings and the almost photographic nature of his images made up of intricate patterns that vary throughout. His portraits sometimes intricately made up of many canvases put together, each one different and isolating a part of the subject but at the same time speaking out to you visually all together in perfect harmony.
MR GREENBLAT b.1915 - oil on canvas 61cm x 61cm

These are carefully planned works, intricately executed, precise and beautifully laid out. The tonal ranges in his pen and ink drawings made up of well thought out patterns and mark making. Despite his precision it never loses its playfulness and expression which I personally enjoy about his work.
BOBBIE - pen and ink

Currently he has an online virtual exhibition entitled "DECONSTRUCTION" at for the next few months.

I hope you enjoy looking at his art as much as I have. (^_^)

An Empire Reborn part III

So here you have it, the basic concept finished.

The lyrical warrior and the landscape of a hybrid London in ruins come together now, with Aztec sun stone designs in the background. A mixture of cultures.

A few further changes were made via Indio Lyrico's direction to keep with his concept for the art work which you will see when he is ready to release it... a special alternative version.

Part I
Part II

Quiet But Busy...

Yes I've been quiet lately, I know.

As well as other work, I've been busy working on a painting for art magazine REVISTA ORDINARIA based in El Salvador. The magazine Discusses and showcases contemporary art made by Salvadorean artists. If you've followed me on Facebook you'll know I've been working on wood again for this. I haven't been able to show you as much as i would like as you'll have to wait until the April edition comes out where all will be revealed, which will be very soon now.
