Printmaking Artist To Work With Queen Anne's Art Scholars
Thursday 28th May 2015
The Art Department are pleased to announce that artist, Mark Andrew Webber, will be working at Queen Anne’s for the next academic year. Mark will be teaching weekly workshops for all our Art Scholars from September 2015.
Mark is an up and coming artist who has exhibited his work both here and abroad. Working primarily in the area of printmaking, Mark’s art explores two main areas. He makes beautiful geometric abstract pieces but he also makes maps of cities including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and New York. The maps are not created simply by converting Google maps into a print, instead, Mark visits each city in question and soaks up the architecture, style and typefaces from that city before creating a map that channels all of these elements. In 2007, he won the Silver Cube Award from the Art Directors Club in New York, and last year had a large solo show at the Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch.
We are thrilled that he will be working with our Art Scholars and look forward to seeing the art that the students produce over the coming academic year.
