Mark Anthony

Exhibit69 was born in South London in 1980 and spent his formative years in the United States, where he was exposed to arts and culture through his parent’s gallery and witnessing the burgeoning scene of Hip-Hop. Returning to the UK during adolescence, life changed drastically with graffiti becoming his main outlet, to assist in escaping the lures of crime and gang culture. Hand painting leather jackets and BDSM attire assisted this introverted artist, with extroverted tendencies, to express himself as an adult, leading to a painter’s assistant role with esteemed street artist d*face. Deep feelings and suppressed emotions were transferred onto various materials from canvas, marble and granite, to represent and navigate past traumas of depression through abandonment and the current challenges of life.
