Artist Bio

Born in North Dakota, Mark Kaufman came of age during the 1960s. A champion for gender equality, Mark paints the female figure in sometimes absurd, sometimes haunting locations. Far from creating emotionless family portraits, Mark blends color and imagery to explore themes of mythology, literature philosophy, and emotion.

He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Mark’s work has been shown in Galleries across the nation. He is a signature member of the Baltimore, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Philadelphia watercolor societies. He chooses watercolor as a medium because it is fluid and sometimes serendipitous.
Thirty years ago, Mark was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. In addition to painting, he is highly visible in the community providing support and advocacy for all those who suffer from mental illness. The bipolar helps shape his work, more in some collections than in others.
