Mark Murphy is an Artist, Designer and Musician, based in Birmingham, UK.
Mark is a Graphic Designer who runs his own independent studio, surely creative design. Alongside design work during the past 7 years he has enjoyed setting himself the challenge of making work in a purely analogue way. Seeking out weird and wonderful print from the last 60 years Mark creates hand-cut paper collages that play with graphics composition, juxtaposition, space, scale and surrealism. Sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative, often humorous.
He enjoys the chance element involved in making these works, the elements that present themselves, how they combine. Mark works from a shared studio space in Stirchley in the south west of Birmingham, close enough to a chocolate factory to smell flake in the air on a densely cloudy day.
Print editions are available to buy of many of the works and some originals also. Information about sales on request.
