Mark Hewko is a multidisciplinary artist specializing in contemporary abstract murals. Raised in New York City by Eastern European immigrants, Mark experimented at an early age with both Roman and Cyrillic alphabets during the height of the subway art movement. Rooted from his professional graphic design/photography experience, he combines letter-forms and color schemes into bold, geometric compositions that burst forth from dull, lifeless walls.
Studied fine art at Queens College with black civil rights artist, Benny Andrews and graphic design at the Fashion Institute of Technology with type designer, Martin Solomon and architect, Herb Glenn Bennett.
Numerous group exhibitions, including the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, Aicon Gallery-NY, Visual Gallery-SD, and many others. His photography and design work has appeared in various print and web publications, including the Village Voice, Esquire, Men's Health and Juxtapoz online.
He currently resides in San Diego, California.
