Mark is a Moscow-based artist study­ing at the Rus­sian State Univer­sity of Cine­matog­ra­phy. He’s par­tic­u­larly in­spired not only by film, but lit­er­a­ture and the work of artists Ruan Jia, Sergey Kolesov, Maxim Vere­hin, Oleg Vdovenko and Ge­orge Re­dreev.

“I paint in a real­is­tic style,” says Mark. “I worked as a mod­eller and an­i­ma­tor for short films while at univer­sity.” As well as work­ing as a free­lance artist and il­lus­tra­tor, Mark has on­go­ing video game projects and is busy cre­at­ing a new short, As They Con­tinue to Fall, with di­rec­tor Nikhil Bha­gat.

Ex­e­cu­tioner “My graphic tablet was out of ac­tion for a while and this work helped me to get back in line. This art was in­spired by the songs of the band Digi­mor­tal and pub­lished in the dig­i­tal edi­tion of Ren­der Mag­a­zine.”

Bar­bar­ian hunter “I drew in­spi­ra­tion for this piece from the works of Fenghua Zhong and Sergey Kolesov. I wanted to paint a fan­tasy art­work with a hu­mor­ous touch and with­out work­ing on the de­tails too much. I think I suc­ceeded.”
