Mark Munroe-Preston

Mark was born in Yorkshire and after completing his photography degree, at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, he moved to London in 1991, He first worked as a photographer’s assistant and worked with many photographers on a wide variety subjects, before starting a career as a freelance photographer, specialising in still life projects. With the arrival of computers and particularly Photoshop he transitioned to a more illustrative style of work. Since then Mark has worked as a digital illustrator for book publishers & magazines around the world, a digital artist for several national newspapers, a children’s illustrator working in 3D and most recently as the Creative Director for an American toy company, where he designed a range of award-winning emotional learning children’s toys.

 

Mark moved to Sussex in 2001 and it was there that he began to explore the local countryside, and particularly the Ashdown Forest and the South Downs National Park, with his dogs and his camera. It was not until 2017 that he began utilising this large library of photographs to create pieces of art for his first exhibition at a local art fair in Uckfield.

 

To create his work Mark digitally enhances his photographs with paintings, drawings, textures, and found objects to create the final artwork. Some of the pieces are more literal interpretations of the places he has photographed, while others are more conceptual or graphic in their approach, but all seek to evoke the beauty, drama, and atmosphere of the landscapes around him. He uses the coordinates of where the original photograph was taken as the titles of his work so they may be visited or found on Google Maps. The works are presented as limited edition prints either on sheets of brushed aluminium or archival fine art papers.

 

Since starting to work full time as an artist Mark has exhibited all across the South East and London. His work is sold in galleries around the UK and as far afield as Panama.
