“Aesthetic value is all I need for the subject to work for me. Then I just have to pair it to the correct 'canvas', which can be tricky – the decision of what to keep and what to take from the map or postcard I choose is a delicate one. They have to work together like in a dance, with the ink as the music.” – Mark Powell

Be the first to know about new Mark Powell Works and Viewing Rooms.

With the humble Bic Biro as his tool of choice, Brighton-based Powell creates intricate portraits on antique documents. His favoured subjects are the elderly, a natural fit for the paper he uses and his detailed style: postmarks and typography merge with pen strokes to create a captivating whole. In contrast, Powell's paintings (on cardboard and other found materials) exhibit street art and advertising influences while maintaining extraordinary detail.
