Born in Brooklyn, NY, artist Mark Cherry moved to Miami in 1984 where he established a reputation for work that reflects a fertile imagination and bold illumination. Essentially self-taught, he embraces painting as a means of expressing an idealized world view of varied possibilities. His paintings often deal with emotional realities, as reflected through daring and intriguing visual possibilities. His bold strokes and colorful palette remind many of Art Brut, but Cherry has also created his own signature style that South Florida art lovers have come to recognize and enjoy.
