Mark Whalen is an Australian born, Los Angeles based artist. Whalen expresses satirical social narratives in seemingly universal situations. The most recent series of sculptural works continues his study into the complexities of displacement and positioning that we, as both individuals and a species, experience through our evolutionary trajectory. Construction netting captures, cordons and compartmentalizes our distinctive characteristics as they shift under the weight of societal pressure through this ever-changing global economy.
Mark was known as a street artist using the name "Kill Pixie".
He works in mixed media and his practice includes paintings, sculpture and ceramics.
Mark is represented by Blackart Projects, Melbourne and Bett Gallery, Hobart as well as galleries in the USA.
