Mark Richmond

San Diego Comic Fest Guest Mark RichmondBorn in 1969 in Pasadena, CA, Mark Richmond’s unique style combines the use of ink, acrylic and spray paint, on either wood or traditional large canvases. He describes his work as a “modernistic approach to ancient Japanese style”, although the subject matter in the paintings take on a more worldly thematic sequence.
