Shabby Chic down at the Art Market

Vintage Frames and colour prints by Mark Wallis
Manchester’s Chorlton Art Market has gone all modern with free wi-fi and a card machine! No more rummaging for cash! Full of the most colourful arts, crafts and vintage clothing – all from local talent – and just down from Quality Save, pop in and support independent trade. I’ll be adding these prints with stone, chalk and gilt effect vintage frames this week. Hurry, because people keep buying stuff!


Each print is also available unframed at Mark Wallis Design, with free postage and packing while stocks last. Framed prints are currently exclusive to Chorlton Art Market. For all the latest news on my new artwork, like my Facebook page!

Mark of the Cross People

For the first time in 15 years, I’m painting again, exhibiting my work at the Sin In My Heart show in Manchester. Once upon a time, in Amsterdam, I had one of my oil paintings up in a sex shop.

When word went out that the theme of the new exhibition was sex, death, sin and religion, I put myself forward as a contributor. How could I not?

Psychedelic Blue Man

Kaleidoscope image oil painting delft kooleidoLast week I showed you my oil painting, Blue Man and this week I fed the image through Kooleido, a kaleidoscope app on my iPhone. I love the religious overtones of mandala-style psychedelic images, and I’ve found the movement of a kaleidoscope quite hypnotic (Believe! Believe!) The result is almost like Dutch Delft ceramic tiles, although with sprawling knots of naked men. Imagine that…
