MARK MOTHERSBAUGH'S 2004 GALLERY TOUR :::
love of art started early in his childhood, just after it
was discovered that he was extremely nearsighted and legally
His first correctional glasses offered Mark a new view of
the world, inspiring his obsession with imagery and illustrations.
His first works, which he began creating in the late 1960's
the 70's, consisted of many different mediums, including
rubber stamp designs,
ink illustrations, screen printing, decals,
He participated in local
showings, and received
recognition for his work in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.
During his downtime on worldwide tours with DEVO, he began
creating postcard art to send to his friends, which he has
been creating every day since then - for 30+ years - A very
obsessive habit. These cards originally served as his personal
diaries, and were never intended for public viewing. That
all changed when Mark decided to share his postcard works
in his critically acclaimed worldwide solo shows during
the 80's & 90's, and with his
INVASION! gallery tour in 2003.
Now Mark will embark on his BEAUTIFUL MUTANTS tour in
2004, which will showcase his photographic symmetrical
creations and 'corrected' imagery. See you there...
