Mark Christopher – Oil
Outstanding artist, Mark Christopher, is returning as PAG’s demonstrator on February 24th. Mark Christopher was an artist before he ever claimed the name. His journey to creating and teaching art was a leap of faith that began in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, where he originally planned to pursue a career in physics. In 2011, he followed his true calling to be a full-time artist into the Arizona desert. Since then, he’s committed to his explosive passionfor painting, drawing, teaching, and unbridled self-expression.
Many of Mark’s images convey a profound serenity that’s hard to find in the modern world. Yet, his love for justice drives him to constantly think of ways to take the difficult but necessary journey of making peace a reality for those suffering from social oppression. His ultimate artistic goal is to re-connect viewers and patrons withwhat matters most: our true selves, our fellow human beings, and living in harmony with nature.
