MARK TIPPETT: POP ICON PAINTINGS

Mark Tippett began life as a commercial artist, working in advertising layout and design before graphic design and art direction. He paints and draws portraits: his self-styled approach, irreverent, aligning to the art of caricature. He has entered the Archibald Prize three times, and is an eight-times finalist in the celebrated Bald Archy Prize. Subjects for the Archibald have included dual Olympic gold medallist sports shooter, Michael Diamond, Prof Gordian Fulde from Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital and champion marathon swimmer, Susie Maroney. Mark works as a commissioning artist (as well as live work at occasional functions and events). He has a degree in Fine Arts and also teaches art classes to all ages. Clients include the Sydney Art School, Art Gallery of NSW and high schools and community groups. His impressionist work focuses on the essence of face, using gestural mark making to capture the image in impastoed lines and contours with fauvist-style complementary colours and experimenting with built up oil glazes. He wants to create awareness to the viewer of complexities of personality and colourful deftness of character: seeking images of pop art icons or those people less widely known. Influences include Frank Auerbach, Lucian Freud, André Derain, Ben Quilty and Adam Cullen. The authenticity of all artworks is guaranteed.

Learn About Art

Artists, composers and designers make use of different mediums, from paintings, drawings or pastels, to mixed media, watercolour, digital art or print making. These refer to the art materials or supplies used in creating artwork. Artistic shapes include Portrait, Landscape, Square, Panoramic or Slim.

Many ideals, styles and approaches are shared by artwork, forming common philosophies. These art 'Movements' are primarily used as a historical convenience for grouping artists of a certain period or style together so that they may be understood within a specific context. Modern Art Movements include Impressionism, Post Impressionism, Cubism, Fauvism, Expressionism, Dadaism, Surrealism and Pop Art. When buying art, their styles may often be broadly broken down into categories of Fine Art, Decorative Art, Vintage Art or Photography.

  • Fine Art is described as especially visual pieces whose products are to be appreciated primarily or solely for their imaginative, aesthetic or intellectual content.
  • Decorative Art is described as that concerned with the production of objects which are both useful and beautiful.
  • Vintage Art - the broad definition is generally commercial artwork created from the 19th through the mid-20th century.
  • Photography is the process of recording images on sensitised material by the action of light, X-rays, etc, and the chemical processing of this material to produce a print, slide or cine film.
