The world of contemporary art is diverse and unpredictable, with so many talented people making it even more fascinating and rich. Today, we want to tell you about Mark Noble, a brilliant Somerset-based artist, who, despite all ups and downs of his personal story, has managed to become a true painter of light and a notable figure in British contemporary art.
His way is his muse
After severe difficulties at school and 20 years of work in the plastic industry, Mark was still dreaming of becoming an artist. His first artistic milestone was entering Strode College, which was the right place to start with. It was there that Noble developed a genuine passion for art he carried with him to Bath Spa University, from which he graduated with an art degree in 2008.
Art happened to be Mark Noble’s ultimate language. His specialization is landscape painting that combines various styles and manners of displaying weather, nature, and the game of light in particular. It is no wonder that Noble is called a painter of light. It is his way of expression.
Mark Noble’s artworks may resemble paintings by William Turner, a legendary name in European art. Although Noble’s works are indeed inspired by the work of the outstanding 19th-century artist, his style and approach to painting remain highly authentic and exceptional. In his paintings, Mark Noble depicts real-world nature most of the time; nevertheless, some of his works display the beauty of the Cosmos and dream-like worlds.
While Mark Noble is a painter of light, he is simultaneously the light bearer. Being dyslexic, the artist uses art as an official language and tries to help children with the same or other health problems also find the way in art by arranging special courses. It is great when such talented people as Mark Noble share their love and passion for art with those who really need their help.
