Mark Warren

So far my life's journey has seen me being brought up in Zambia, Africa then moving to the UK, onward to the Latrobe Valley, Victoria, before settling in Adelaide, South Australia.

All of these places and the people that I have met shape the person I am today. My introduction at an early age to the primitive art forms of Africa and the wildlife and nature that I saw there appears in my work today as primitive suburban animals, plants trees and shapes. While in the UK I was introduced to British comedy shows such as Monty Python and Benny Hill, and Jazz music by my grandfather. I would like to think that humour and rhythm are prevalent in my work and these are the sources. Moving to Australia from the UK the first thing that struck me was the natural light, everything is more colourful and bright and I want to portray that in my work.
