I'm pleased to have Marcus Aitken join as a guest artist for the Affordable Art Fair show in Battersea, London in March 2022.
Marcus Aitkenis a contemporary artist living and working in South London. Known for his gestural paintings, Marcus uses a combination of layering, distressing and blending to present a multifaceted surface to his work. His background in design has developed his artistic style creating cutting-edge abstract works.
He has shown in exhibitions internationally and has collectors around the globe. His work has been featured by various publications including Schön! Magazine, Art Plugged, Saatchi Online, Soft Punk Magazine,
9/10 Magazine, Trebuchet Magazine, Condé Nast, and Culture Trip. He was also named as one of Saatchi Art’s top 20 emerging artists to watch in 2020.
Marcus says“For me, it’s all about the physicality of painting and connecting with my materials, tools and surfaces in different ways. I am interested in repurposing materials and recreating new narratives from old objects. I paint to capture precious moments and movements - I suppose there is an element of performance when I work as the output is very raw, impulsive and intuitive”.
Marcus regularly exhibits his work and has commissioned works for commercial spaces and individual collectors.
** Works for sale will be available to view on 4 March 2022.
