“Imaginative, seemingly uncomplicated, with powerful striking contrasts”
“My passion for this city is obviously related to the fact that I was born here. But the city’s atmosphere with its canals, its decorative gables and its culture also contributes to its inspirational character.”
City Impressions Amsterdam
Mark Raven is a self taught artist from Amsterdam who has been creating city scapes since 1987. His work is characterized by his love of city scapes and most noteably from his home town Amsterdam. Mark uses colour and texture in his etchings using light, layers and stroke. He creates moody, emotional pieces that resonate with his audience.
“You will find artwork related to Amsterdam, of course, but also of other places that have inspired me. There’s a selection of prints, but also of drawings and sketches, some of which I hope to turn into a more definitive form in the future.”
