Originally from Newcastle, it was an interest in Fashion and Design that lead Mark Bell to study at Central St. Martins School of Art, London where he gained his degree.
It was initially life drawing that attracted Mark whilst starting to make a name for himself as a Fine Artist. This developed into a love for paint and capturing personality in his raw, energetic expression of performers.
Mark, with his wife Sarah, part own and run a hugely popular South Devon “Speak Easy” style club “The Lucky 7 Club”. International performers from the Burlesque, Blues and American Roots Music world form a stream of inspirational muses for this artist.
This latest work finds Mark celebrating his passion for music, interpreting mood through colour and light.
