Medusa complex refers to the cold stare of a parent causing a child to freeze in fear, the power of our expressions and posture to convey raw emotion, threat or fear without a word being spoken is fascinating.

Artist Profile

Hometown: London

Based in: Pebmarsh

London based creative and painter Mark Brightman, has spent the past 20 years touring internationally with global music artists as a production designer and tour manager. His glittering career boasts the likes of Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Boyzone, Iggy Azalea, Jack Garratt, Anne-Marie and Louis Tomlinson.

Inspired by the greats such Van Gogh, Picasso, Basquiat, Damien Hurst, Warhol, Freud, Banksy and influenced by contemporary artists such as Jake- Andrew Nason, Ian Hodgson, Jake Wood-Evans, Retna, Ian Rayer-Smith, Brad Robson, Kyle Barnes, Rene Matic and Matt Herriot (who he recently hooked up with Jessie J to do a portrait of her), Mark’s paintings are edgy and adventurous, featuring bold splashes of bright colours and different textural themes. In his paintings, Mark uses house-hold mops, plastering tools, trowels amongst other house-hold tools to experiment with texture, delivery and finish.

Mark previously studied theatre production and design at London’s ARLA (Academy of Live and Recorded Arts) and has spent his career creatively directing world tours and one off performances for global artists on TV award shows. Highlights include having Jessie J break out of a giant exploding safe for the EMAs and directing Iggy Azalea with Alice Chater swimming In bath tubs full of metallic petals for The Rolling Stone Magazine awards in Berlin.


At the beginning of March 2020, Mark was three shows into a 4-month world tour with Louis Tomlinson and at that time would never have believed that 10 months later he would be invited to exhibit his paintings in London with up and coming artist Jake Andrew-Nason. With the tour cancelled and the whole world locked-down, Mark returned to London and his love of painting.

“Last Christmas my kids had bought me an easel and some acrylics for Christmas and once lockdown hit London I began painting for hours every day trying to get to grips with the technicalities of getting my ideas out, I started buying bigger and bigger canvases and then spray paint, then different tools both art related and beyond.”
