Mark Posey (b. 1985)
I am a 27 year old artist living and working in downtown Los Angeles. I graduated from the Academy of Art San Francisco in late 2012 and won 1st place abstract artist while I was there. One of the reason why I make art is because I greatly value freedom of expresion. I keep traditional values that I learrned in art school within my work, while trying to stay loose and expressive. "My current art thrives on intuition and spontaneity. I use thick layers of fluid paint to capture my energy, and embrace the unexpected movements of the paint. It is the randomness and an embrace of the unforeseen that makes my art true to my nature and to life itself."
I am currently showing at Broadfoot and Broadfoot in NJ, and am a resident artist at the Hive gallery in Los Angeles.
Education: MFA, Academy of Art, 2012. BA History, UC Berkeley, 2010.
