Hello, I'm Mark Murphy - an Artist, Designer and Musician, based in Birmingham, UK.
I've worked as a Graphic Designer for many years and during the past 5 years I've enjoyed setting myself the challenge of making work in a purely analogue way. Seeking out weird and wonderful print from the last 60 years I create hand cut paper collages that play with graphic composition, juxtaposition, space, scale and surrealism. Sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative, often humorous.
I enjoy the chance element involved in making these works, the elements that present themselves, how they combine. I work from a shared studio space in Stirchley in the south west part of Birmingham, close enough to the chocolate factory to smell flake in the air on a densley cloudy day.
Print editions are available to buy of many of my works and some originals also. Information about sales on request.
If you like what I do and want to tell me, would like me to keep you updated about new prints/exhibitions, want to collaborate or would like to commission any work you can contact me here.
Thanks for looking.
