Mark Chadwick’s Inspirations
With a clear nod to Damien Hirst’s spin art, Mark often uses machinery to form his Fluid Paintings. The bold and visceral quality of Mark’s paintings is reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism and Mark’s practice is greatly influenced by the movement, particularly by leading figures, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Gerhard Richter. Finding inspiration in anything and everything, Mark’s ‘go to’ is the sky, with its fluid colours and moving formations of clouds making for a natural manifestation of Mark’s art.
Spin Art Success
Building layer upon layer, the quick drying nature of acrylic paint allows Mark to create layers of texture to his work. The success of Mark’s art has led to exhibitions throughout the UK and US and an ever-growing presence online. A YouTube sensation, Mark has a following of upwards of 250,000, with the abstract surface of his paintings inviting viewers to form their own interpretations.
