This auction is raising proceeds for War Child UK
Paint and wildlife have been Mark Adlington’s twin passions since he was a small child. Growing up by the ocean on Ireland’s western fringe it was seals that first hypnotised him ; an animal that perfectly exemplifies the simultaneous otherness and similarities of all living creatures.
It was only after an academic degree in Art History at the University of Edinburgh and several years working for Sotheby's Auctioneers that Mark had the courage to throw caution to the wind and go to Art School.
Since then he has travelled the world seeking out his elusive subjects project by project with obsessional fervour, returning to the studio with full sketchbooks and hours of reference footage to battle with the abstractions of paint, form and colour in the studio.
Mark is represented by the John Martin of London Gallery and Bridgeman Images.
