ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Justin Mark has always had an interest in wildlife, particularly African wildlife. In 2019 he travelled to Zambia in the hope of seeing lions in the wild, and South Luangwa National Park did not disappoint, providing him with many close encounters with his favourite species. He has explored a variety of mediums, however he feels most at home with graphite pencils, which allow him to capture the smallest details with the aim of portraying accurate to life depictions of his subjects. Justin has met his favourite wildlife artist, the renowned Robert Bateman, on two occasions and, in his teenage years, Justin was selected as a winner in a National Robert Bateman Art Contest directed specifically at youth. More recently, he was selected as a finalist in the 2022 DSWF WAY competition and feels honoured to be selected once again in 2023. Justin will be travelling to Kenya’s Lake Nakuru National Park and the Maasai Mara for more inspiration this October.
