Mark McClure is a multi disciplinary British artist working from his studio in North East London. He was born in the Midlands, UK in 1974 and trained as a graphic designer. He works by blending sculpture and visual arts with graphic & functional design.
With a background in interactive design as well as graphic design - Mark also introduced a level of viewer participation, exploring our perceptions of value and luxury versus function and utility. The works explore themes of structure, public space and our interaction with the built environment. They both stimulate and complement through their use of materials, colour and composition – reflecting the structural nature of the spaces they inhabit. The resulting pieces are stunning constructed artworks which vary in size and scale, some which are more sculptural 3D objects and others 2D wall art which often set function and utility up against aesthetics and playfulness.
Mark’s hand crafted and geometric style has been widely commissioned by Interior Designers, Architects and Public Art bodies for creating bespoke surfaces, constructions and murals for both exterior and interior projects.
He has exhibited both in the UK and abroad. Mark McClure has exhibited widely in the UK and Internationally and has undertaken a number of Public Art commissions and Artist residencies Internationally.
