Mark is an animal lover and artist by nature, which is reflected in his gritty style and intensity of his artwork.
“…the next Andy Warhol.”- USA Weekend Magazine
His passions are; experiencing God, his family, and his art.
Although Mark is a behind the scenes kinda guy his artwork is making heads turn. National magazines and television including Southern Living Magazine, HGTV, and Southern Living Presents have featured Mark and his head turning artwork. USA WEEKEND Magazine dubbed Mark, “…the next Andy Warhol.” His art has a style and feel that is unique in the experience of American Pop/Folk art.
Experiencing a Mark Durham design is like looking into a kaleidoscope, you’re never quite sure which angle you will see. That is exactly the point of Mark’s artwork. In his opinion, “…art is supposed to awaken the senses.”
Through his art, Mark transports our pets, friends, and selves from the ordinary to the extraordinary -just the way the we see them.
Now Mark and his work, Mad Dog Art, come to Amelia Island for the Fernandina Beach Arts Market.
