Mark Beattie MRSS
Mark Beattie MRSS is a British award winning sculptor who lives and works in London.
In 2015, Mark won the Midlands Open, The Xerxes Sculpture Prize and was elected a Member of The Royal Society of Sculptors (MRSS). In 2017 Mark was shortlisted for the Open Contemporary Young Artist Award run by the Biscuit Factory Gallery in Newcastle and long-listed for The Secret Art Prize by Curious Duke Gallery and also for the international Rise Art Prize.
Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, Mark can make industrial materials appear fluid, malleable and delicate. He continues to study different metals, looking at ways to manipulate and add movement to the material.
Over the past 3 years Mark has been developing ways in which neon and LED’s can complement his sculptures, adding to the movement of a piece and catching the viewer’s eye.
Mark has a strong academic background in art, having studied a BA Hons (International) in Contemporary Art Practice at Leeds University, with a period at the Australian National University at Canberra, and after an MA in European Arts Practice at Kingston University, Surrey. To date he has now exhibited in over 60 exhibitions, solo and group and has a strong following from collectors both in the UK and abroad.Current Artworks Download Full Biography
