Artist: Marcus Quintal

Species: Homo conscious





Marcus is a young and talented British artist with a passion for his craft and has a keen interest and concern for the environment. He sees that as the world advances in technology it becomes our greatest triumph and fall too. He believes even technology gets exploited and it is damaging our world. Overfishing, extinction, deforestation, and pollution are some of the ethical issues that he remains sensitive to and his art goes some way to reflect this .He utilises a variety of techniques which includes metal welding, plaster casting and electrical innovations in his practice.  In his past work he has combined white ceramic with chrome metal to create kinetic based sculptures.
Marcus graduated from Central Saint Martin’s University of Art and Design with a BA in Fine Arts in 2010.  Previously he studied at the famous Morley College founded in the 1880s where he honed his skills in metal fabrication. Since then he has gone on to produce art sculptures at various locations.
Marcus has produced a number of commissions and has had work displayed in several galleries. His work continues to get more progressive and is willing to accept private commissions for worthy causes.
