A Passionate Sydney Artist
Mark Hanham has positioned himself as a true Sydney artist. Born and bred in Paddington, Sydney, his first passion is to evoke the sensual curves of the geography of this city’s amazing Harbour and architecture. In the way Brett Whitely captured the essence of Sydney in his day, so too is Mark able to identify and capture the soul and beauty of the city.
Coupled with his uncanny sensitivity to the zeitgeist and his innate appreciation of a city and its architecture, Mark’s European paintings - Paris, Vienna, Stockholm and London to date, as well as New York and Hollywood, evoke the mood of these cities in a way few artists can. Sydney siders collect Mark’s Sydney Harbour paintings along with expats who order and ship his paintings to far off shores, in order to relive the sunny Sydney skies and voluptuous sweeps of the harbour and its views.
