Featured Artist – Mark Dickson

There are some people who transcend one aspect of art, they are ‘burdened’ with a multitude of specific talents that could conceivably justify them being labelled as a modern day renaissance or overwhelmed prodigy.

Mark Dickson is a talented musician, creative tour de force, charitable son of a gun and gifted chef among other things, but it is perhaps for his sketches and craft creations that he is currently best known.

His work ranges from simple caricatures to a series of intricate and evocative  ‘grickonel’ characters (an animal created by the artist that is perhaps most accurately described as a hybrid of a kangaroo and rabbit.) These are predominantly composed of felt and are instantly captivating.

Word of Dickson’s thought provoking concepts is already commonplace throughout the south coast art scene, with regular commissions coming his way.

To that end, winter is a good season to get in touch if you’re interested in utilising Mark’s talents for any relevant projects you may have on the horizon.

Details on how to contact the artist or look at/listen to more of his impressive offerings are listed below the gallery.
