Mark Hanham Gallery
Things To Do Surry Hills, Sydney, New South Wales
Born 1978 in Paddington, Sydney, Mark Hanham studied at National Art School then completed a Master’s Degree in Art at the College of Fine Art. Mark Hanham was attracted to art at an early age and had an exceptional talent in capturing perspective, even when four years old – he has been drawing continually ever since. In 2011 at the age of 33, he took the almost unprecedented step of opening his own gallery in Sydney’s busy Crown Street Surry Hills, exhibiting only Mark Hanham art. The gallery has defied economic downturns to become one of the most successful galleries in Sydney.
Mark Hanham’s style is essentially ‘Contemporary Figurative’. With his large scale and brash works, he will take us on a journey of discovery into his own world. A modern ‘Action Painter’, he is influenced and inspired by Jackson Pollock and his drip painting.
