About Mark Bentley
Mark was born in Ballarat, Victoria and from a young age always had an interest in drawing and painting.
He studied Fine Art at Ballarat University (majoring in Graphic Design) and after graduating moved to Melbourne where he worked at a number of ad agencies and design studios. He is currently Creative Director of one of Australia’s leading corporate design houses.
Mark’s recent work explores still life where the subject is captured against a simple plain background. The large surrounding space seeks to highlight the subject giving it prominence and focus. His interest in a more graphic and realistic style has led to this current series of works.
