Welcome to the mind of Mark Denton: a look at the work in his Art Mart gallery
The extraordinary creative mind that is Mark Denton has his own art gallery – a grocery shop styled show in Shoreditch, London.
The gallery named 'the Art Mart' was an exhibition of art and prints by the advertising legend. These included 'Chinese Girl (from Croyden)', which was also available to buy as exclusive gold leafed, limited edition prints.
Also featured were graphic projects such as the ‘Not Nice’ world of Evil Farms, conceived by Denton and realised by photographers Joe Giacomet, Jonnie Malachi and Oliver Carver. As he explained in The Drum's video of the gallery (see above), supporting CG characters were created in collaboration with the celebrated animation company ‘A Large Evil Corporation’.
