Marcus Aitken is a contemporary artist and painter, living and working in South London. 


Marcus’ paintings are a series of process led works. He uses a combination of layering, distressing and blending to build a multifaceted surface, adding a sense of depth and drama to the work.


Coming from a design background, Marcus has evolved his practice through mixed media, sculpture and jewellery design. He brings his experiences from previous practices to enrich his new works. The results are vibrant, energetic paintings with exciting sculptural elements.


Marcus regularly exhibits his work and has commissioned works for commercial spaces, residential, hotels and individual collectors. To keep up with the latest exhibitions, art fairs and news, follow Marcus on Instagram @marcus.aitken.art
