Marcus Aitken

Marcus Aitken is a contemporary artist and painter, living and working in London. He was recently named as one of Saatchi Art's top 20 emerging artists to watch in 2020. Marcus’ paintings are a series of process led works. He uses a combination of layering, distressing and blending to build a multifaceted surface, adding a sense of depth and drama to the work. ​ Marcus comes from a design background and has evolved his practice through mixed media, sculpture and jewellery design. He brings his experiences from previous practices to enrich his new works. The results are vibrant, energetic paintings with exciting sculptural elements.
