Mark Evans

Mark Evans is unique among artists in that he carves iconography into leather with knives. Its primal, extremely time consuming – each image takes between two and three months to execute – and incredibly photo-realistic. He discovered the technique whilst removing blood from his biker jacket with a blade. Epiphany over Mark then set to work creating images steeped in masculinity and reeking of cool Americana.

Celebrity collectors aside Mark is best known for his million dollar commissions for Russian Oligarchs. It was recently reported in the Telegraph that Mark charged $17’500 per square foot to deck out a certain someones yacht in floral leather wallpaper.

His first London show “Skin Deep”can be seen at Scream Gallery, Mayfair until the 8th May.
