Mark Beattie MRSS is an award-winning sculptor who lives and works in London. Mark received a BA Hons (International) in Contemporary Art Practice at Leeds University which included a year studying at Australian National University. More recently Mark completed an MA in European Arts Practice at Kingston University, Surrey.
Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, Mark can make industrial metal appear fluid, malleable and delicate. He continues to study different metals, looking at ways to manipulate and add movement to the material. Over the past 3 years has been developing ways in which neon or LEDs can complement his sculptures, adding movement to a piece and catching the viewer’s eye.
Mark won the Midlands Open and the Xerxes Sculpture Prize in 2015 and in the same year he was elected a member of The Royal Society of Sculptors (MRSS).
To date Mark has now exhibited in over 60 exhibitions; the most notable a group show at 45 Park Lane Hotel in Mayfair, a solo exhibition at Café Royal Hotel in London and various international art fairs. Mark has built a strong following from collectors both in the UK and abroad.
