Mark Hanham Australian, b. 1978

Mark Hanham studied at National Art School then completed a Master’s Degree in Art at the College of Fine Art in Sydney.

He has painted every day since he was fourteen years of age and is an extraordinarily successful artist! Mark is known for his large scale, brash works and takes the viewer on a journey of discovery into his own world. A contemporary realistic action painter, he is influenced and inspired by American modernist painter Jackson Pollock’s dripping of paint, Picasso’s linear soft forms and his love for travel. One sees the isolation of cities also in Hanham’s paintings, Mark often visually narrates daily life allowing the collector to be immediately be transported to those international grand cities when connecting with his work.
