Marc Rayner

Others

For as long as I can remember I have drawn and created things. The ability to touch someone's life-perhaps on the other side of the planet and of a completely different culture- is of profound importance to me. I am generally a sociopolitical artist who also has a fondness for history. I like to merge these three elements and then fuse them to my favoured genre of painting or sculpture (Neo expressionism) to illustrate the joys and pitfalls of this distorted world we live in.
