Mark petty is a London based artist and image maker. After studying art, illustration, and photography, Petty began a career in the world of advertising. Now, with years of experience behind him, the artist specialises in hand-pulled screen prints and reverse glass gold gilding, incorporating hand painting and hand applied diamond dust and gold leaf. The result? Truly dazzling works of art. Steeped in contemporary Pop Art and soaked in cultures of modernity, Petty uses bold symbolism – from rave smileys to skulls – encrusting them with shimmering, textured details, so that they seem sparkle within their frames.
All Petty’s work is emotional to him, none more so than the ‘Ocean Life, Limited Edition’ series. Petty has made this work entirely of recycled material or up-cycled waste plastic. Art that will be a timeless reminder to look after our oceans. Ageless, with a positive anti-pollution message whilst upcycling waste plastic. Frames are made with onetreeplanted.org neutralising the carbon for every frame made. Resin and paint pots all gets blended and used in the art piece.
