One of the most prolific and acclaimed illustrators of the 20th century, Mark English produced work for such publications as McCalls, Time, Sports Illustrated, and Redbook before co-founding the Illustration Academy in 1995. The intensive, mentor-led academy, and English’s own instruction and influence, have now impacted an entire generation of illustrators in the U.S. It was also in 1995 that he transitioned from illustrator to studio artist and began painting for exhibition in earnest. In his latest work, landscapes and figures are abstracted compositions of color and texture, each piece layered with paint, ink, and collage, to be visually excavated by the viewer. A never-ending pursuit of exciting arrangements and materials fuels English’s imagination and those of his eager collectors. His work is celebrated and sought after worldwide.
