Mark Demsteader was born in Manchester in 1963 and still lives and works there. He studied at Rochdale college, Oldham art college and The Slade. His awards include The Public Eye Award, The Lyceum Prize and The Sidney Andrews Scholarship.
Mark’s work has developed from a fascination with the human form and an obsession with classical themes. These pre-occupations can be seen in recent paintings where his close observation combines with surface texture and carefully balanced compositions to create a beautiful and powerful representation of the figure.
Mark Demsteader has been purchased by many important collectors, and current demand for his work reflects his growing reputation.
His recent exhibitions across the United Kingdom have served to establish him as one of today’s outstanding talents.(demsteader.com)
