Mark Penrose – ‘Culture Matters’

Mark Is a visual artist and poet based in Glasgow. His work draws on his experiences working as a labourer, working class history and culture. He’s particularly drawn to urban communities and authentic stories about the lives and leisure time of the people in industrial communities across the central belt. His artwork has been exhibited in galleries across the UK and his illustrations have feature in acclaimed publications, including releases by Burning Eye Books and grassroots Scottish music releases. The paintings in this exhibition depict the diaspora and their search for identity in an industrial landscape. With these paintings Mark weaves together authentic stories of working class culture in these communities.
