About Mark King :
Passionate about horses since his youth, King’s animated depictions of polo and the fox hunt derive from personal experience. Since his arrival in the United States, as King became more exposed to sports, he capitalized on the drama and visual spectacle of ice hockey and horse racing, as well as his love of the outdoors by treating subjects like yacht racing, golf and tennis from a seascape or landscape point of view. King concentrates on strong patterns of brilliant color in his works. Fascinated with painting techniques, he meticulously layers colors, glazes and shapes as a base for the small amount of acrylic paint that floats on top and forms the finished composition. His works have a rich depth and texture.
