Mark Spain trained in technical graphics at Medway College of Art before setting up a printmaking studio in Kent producing original edition etchings. In October 1987 he was commissioned to produce limited edition etchings of Kew gardens and has since undertaken many other commissions, with clients ranging from National Westminster Bank to the Dorchester Hotel. His work has also been represented by several leading publishers and distributed worldwide.
Mark has exhibited in numerous exhibitions and one man shows including the prestigious Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows, the 20th Century British Art Fair and the Barbican Contemporary Print Fair. A vigorous and creative artist, he is constantly experimenting with different subjects and techniques which are then applied to an amazing variety of images from traditional landscapes to dazzling collagraphs.
Mark’s work has been exhibited in galleries all over the UK and can be found in private collections round the world.
