About 

 

Mark Kaiser was born in Worcestershire and has been painting and drawing since the age of three. In the summer after graduation he was contacted by EMI Records who were particularly interested in an illustration he’d created out of burnt Chinese newspapers and this was subsequently seen by the then up-and-coming band Radiohead who wanted to entitle their EP ‘Chinese Burn’. The band loved it and exhibited the finished painting in their house. Among his artistic inspirations are Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, Frida Kahlo, Edward Hopper, Gustave Baumann, Simon Palmer and Paul Gauguin. Mark lives in Warwickshire and paints from a busy studio filled with travel books. He exhibited his work at Artistic License Gallery in Primrose Hill, London for many years and was represented by the gallery at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea many times. The exhibitions were sell-outs and resulted in many private commissions. His work has inspired many musicians, actors, architects and poets. "I like to entertain people with my work, to educate, and to recall memories of favourite destinations that people have been to. My main focus is on architecture, travel and colour. There is a wealth of subject matter on offer and there is no end to that reference material - all one has to be is selective in the choice on offer. There is a story to each piece, in essence I am a storyteller, only working in colour and form instead of the written word.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   
 
Aurora Borealis, Bordeyri, Iceland 
The small house in Bordeyri sits amongst the symphony of light behind it as the snow-covered ground all around is bathed in a semi-green hue of light. It's dark out beyond the green aurora, it's bitterly cold but the winter chill is warmed by the inviting light emanating from the house. The scene is one of hope, that no matter what darkness is around us there is always light piercing the shadows.
