About the Artist

Mark Greyland is a mixed media artist currently living in Berkeley, California. Mark became interested in art as a teenager and went on to obtain an Associate’s Degree in Computer Animation at the Arts Institute International in Colorado in 1998. Extensive self training in Illustrator and Photoshop led him to develop a distinctive style based on extensive study of the works of MC Escher, Yves Tanguy, and Hans Bellmer among others. The art is usually created without scans or placed photographs and uses both fractals and geometric images. In March of 2012 Mark was privileged to have a one–man solo exhibition of his work entitled “Seeing Stars: Geofractals by Mark Greyland” and recently had a second display at the art show at Comic Con International. Mark has synesthesia and cites it as an essential component of his compositions. He has online portfolios at or on Facebook at
