Mark L’Argent’s art is a fusion of contemporary hand lettering, fine art, collage and print disciplines that explore and express the nature of human relations through words, language and poetry, philosophy, found objects and recycled ephemera.
Drawing on classical training and traditions of historical lettering, L’Argent combines contemporary, expressive and inventive forms with colour and design. Using language, words and letters as a jumping off point, the duality of the work is a constant theme where the irregular sits alongside the tranquil, the insistent contrasts with the serene, and where the romantic and sensual butts up against the abstract.
Mark is an elected member of The Art Worker’s Guild and has his work widely exhibited. He runs workshops and masterclasses across the UK
