Mark Youd

Mark Youd is an artist working in Caerphilly, South Wales. Trained as a draughtsman and, in parallel to a successful career as a designer and technical illustrator; he’s been developing his personal artistic practice. This work explores his influences & intuition, and focuses on graphic portraits using traditional media. This series of paintings each depict a brief moment, a glimpse of a woman, perhaps brushed passed in a crowd, in that moment you connect with her and somehow you are able to experience her thoughts and feelings, even daydreams. These images are an attempt to record that sensation before it fades.
