Mark Charlton is a Brighton based artist who produces mixed media abstract paintings and prints. The work is energetic and spontaneous using multiple layers, which are built up over a substantial period of time until a final composition is realised and refined.

His art explores a futuristic vision of space exploration from the perspective of the 1950’s telling a story through a stylised visual language. The work represents fragments from salvaged space vessels that have reached the deepest depths of the universe. From the fictitious beginnings of ‘The B-12 Module’ and its scientific mission to Pluto his collections of work track an ongoing journey inspired by a mid century optimism of an unknown but enthralling future of galactic discovery.

He studied at the North East Wales Institute of Art and Design, gaining a BA Hons in Animation Design in 2001. After spending many productive years working as a freelance animator and motion designer primarily in the music industry, he devoted his time to developing his own style in mixed media art.
