Marcus Aitken is a contemporary artist and painter, living and working in South London.
Marcus’ paintings are a series of process led works. He uses a combination of layering, distressing and blending to build a multifaceted surface, adding a sense of depth and drama to the work.
Marcus comes from a design background and has evolved his practice through mixed media, sculpture and jewellery design. He brings his experiences from previous practices to enrich his new works. The results are vibrant, energetic paintings with exciting sculptural elements.
Marcus has commissioned works for private homes, hotels and commercial spaces including curating and organising a number of exhibitions.
