Born 1978 in Paddington, Sydney, Australian Mark Hanham studied at National Art School then completed a Master’s Degree in Art at the College of Fine Art in Sydney.
He has painted every day since he was fourteen years of age and is an extraordinarily successful artist! Mark is known for his large scale, brash works and takes the viewer on a journey of discovery into his own world.
A contemporary realistic action painter, he is influenced and inspired by American modernist painter Jackson Pollock’s dripping of paint, Picasso’s linear soft forms and his love for travel. One sees the isolation of cities also in Hanham’s paintings, Mark often visually narrates daily life allowing the collector to be immediately be transported to those international grand cities when connecting with his work.
Mark is especially known for his large scale streetscapes and iconic well known city overviews. In 2011 at the age of 33, he took the almost unprecedented step of opening his own gallery in Sydney’s busy Crown Street Surry Hills.
Mark has travelled throughout Europe, gaining momentum for a Tuscan series and staging a solo show at Singapore.
