TAPESTRY OF IDEAS

With over 400 sketch books, over 18,000 montage sketches, an ever-growing collage 80 metres long and 1.5 metres high, titled 'Tapestry of Ideas'. Mark’s sketches are his trademark New Renaissance Man’ output of diagrams, notes and drawings. Mark commented, ‘My tapestries are a Ticker-tape of my imagination: a diary of day to day sketches and ideas.’

Since early childhood, Mark has been obsessed with his sketch books and colouring pens in order to communicate his concepts; colourfully painted sketches have become the MH Brand’s corporate identity. He also, makes scaled maquettes of his ideas, developing his work into a 3-dimensional physical reality, an installation titled Tower of Maquettes’.
