Mark Cherry

Mark Cherry was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1949.  Mark started painting in his teens in which a creative outlet turned into a lifelong love and obsession other than his beautiful daughter Hudson born in 2003. 

Essentially the artist embraces painting as a means of self expression.  Mark's paintings deal with the emotional joy, humor and overall experience of life with a organic and childlike playful view of society and its idiosyncrasies.

As with the Art Brut Movement Mark's  Primitive work displays bold lines, raw textures and  vivid palettes. 

Mark Cherry is considered by his peers as one of the few authentic naïve painters of his time. His work draws us into the raw, innocent directness of the inner child and leaves us reminiscent of  more innocent moments in life.
