Mark Ow is originally from Malaysia with a childhood in Portugal. He has lived in London for the last 20 years and like his creative interests he has moved around a lot.
His first real passion was photography, but then music took over for many years. Nevertheless he would always keep these tiny drawings on small bits of paper in his pocket, in the bottom of his bag and under the mattress.
He has always drawn with black pens and when he puts it to paper – one line leads to another, then another, then another. There is no plan, the pen leads. Faces and patterns appear and words pop up. The final outcome is always a mystery, a journey of imagination that reveals itself over time.
Mark will present his illustrations at the ‘Chaos Control’, 11th of June 2013, Cafe 1001, Brick Lane.
