mars black (uk) born 1975

A self taught artist painting under the pseudonym mars black - a nod to the anonymity of modern age avatars, usernames & multiple online identities, his recent work comments on a newer form of pop culture that is drowning in digital content & reference.

Scenes of juxtaposed symbols, figures and objects clash against surreal landscapes. The work responds to the unpredictable and disparate digital world we now inhabit, mirroring the darkest to the most ridiculous aspects of humanity and creating new distorted realities.
