Demsteader, Mark
Mark Demsteader was born in Manchester in 1963; he studied at Rochdale College, Oldham College and the Slade. His awards include The Lyceum Prize and The Sidney Andrews Scholarship.

Mark’s working style developed from a fascination with the human form and an obsession with classical themes. These preoccupations can be seen in recent paintings where his close observation combines with surface texture and carefully balanced compositions to create a beautiful and powerful representation of the figure.
