bases his artistic philosophy on the punk music one of "3
chords and a cheap guitar to come up with a classic", and
names the painters, Alfred Wallis, Bryan Pearce, John Bellany
and Stella Vine as influences. Mark D paints with the canvas flat
on the floor. His first paintings were a series on artists, including
Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Stella Vine, as well as Stuckists
and a comment on the Chris Ofili Tate trustee scandal, showing
the Tate Chairman, Paul Myners, with a Pinocchio nose. This was
followed by a series on celebrities in general.
