A multidisciplinary artist specializing in contemporary abstract murals. Raised in New York City by Ukrainian immigrants, Mark began experimenting at an early age in both Roman and Cyrillic letter styles during the height of the subway art movement. Rooted off of his professional graphic design/photography experience, Mark fuses combinations of letterforms, words and color schemes into bold, geometric mural 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, NYC, Visual Gallery, San Diego and many others. His work has appeared in various publications, including the Village Voice, Esquire, Men's Health and Juxtapoz. He currently resides in San Diego, California.
