Mark Beattie MRBS is an emerging sculptor who lives and works in London. Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, Mark can make industrial metal appear fluid, malleable and delicate. Over the past 2 years Mark has been developing ways in which neon orLEDs can complement his sculptures, adding movement to a piece and catching the viewer's eye.
In 2015, Mark won the Midlands Open, Xerxes Sculpture Prize and was elected a member of The Royal British Society of Sculptors (MRBS). In 2017 Mark was shortlisted for the Open Contemporary Young Artist Award run by the Biscuit Factory gallery in Newcastle, Shortlisted for the Rise Art Prize and long-listed for The Secret Art Prize by Curious Duke Gallery in London.
Mark has a strong academic background in art, having studied a BA Hons (International) in Contemporary Art Practice at Leeds University and more recently an MA in European Arts Practice at Kingston University, Surrey.
