About Mark Curryer

An early interest in painting and drawing resulted in a number of awards at a young age for Eastbourne born Mark Curryer.  After studying Three-Dimensional Design at Art College Mark enjoyed a successful career in the city. But the pull towards art was never far away and he eventually returned to his real love – painting. He now lives and works in Eastbourne as a full-time painter from his home studio.

Mark’s captivating cityscapes exude boldness and atmosphere, drawing inspiration from distinctive architecture and the intricacies of daily urban existence.  Rains transformative effect on the city, especially during the night, fascinates him, as do the myriad reflections cast by multiple light sources. Notably, Mark employs unconventional techniques in his artistic process, opting for tools like rollers and scrapers instead of traditional brushes.

Some areas of his canvas are loose and abstract, others contain incredible detail – but both linking to the wider setting of the painting.
