About the Artist
Mark Durham doesn't take things at face value-He's always looking for the truth that lies beneath the surface. It's not surprising, then that as a portrait artist, Mark is more concerned with capturing on his canvas what the subject IS rather than what he LOOKS like. With his own quirky sense of humor and a nod toward the heroes from whose lives And work he draws inspiration, Mark produces portraits of people, animals and landscapes as they populate the world of his imagination.
A Mark Durham portrait is not for the timid or conservative-minded; Mark's art is for those of us who enjoy costume parties, funhouses, daydreams-even delusions of grandeur. Mark's portraits are for everyone who wanted to be King (or Queen) - For-A-Day, for everyone who has been caught in the ecstatic throes of a glorious air-guitar solo. His paintings are about fun: Having Fun, Being Fun and sharing fun.
Since graduating from the University of Georgia, Durham has continued his art education by studying with artists at several colleges while exhibiting his work at various galleries, festivals, trade shows where he has claimed top prizes.
Wherever it has been displayed, Durham's artwork has found an appreciative audience and his paintings are proudly included in the collections of Priests, Presidents and fellow artists.
Currently operating his own studio in Atlantic Beach FL, Durham directs his energy towards portrait commissions and licensing. Durham's Mad Studio is open by appointment only.
