Mark Titchner uses diverse mediums such as digital print, drawing, film, sculpture and installation in his work. Born in Luton, England in 1973, he attended the Hertfordshire College of Art & Design from 1991-1992 before graduating from Central St. Martins College of Art & Design in 1995. He received a Turner Prize nomination for his 2006 seminal show, IT IS YOU, at the Arnolfini, Bristol. Titchner’s work incorporates multiple identities alongside past and present secular and spiritual notions of faith. Many of the motifs in his work derive from propaganda, advertising, and religious iconography that gives the viewer a call to respond. He combines found text from a variety of sources such as evangelical pamphlets and heavy metal albums to create powerful new images and ideas.
Titchner’s work is owned by museums and private collections throughout the world, including the Tate Modern. His works have been exhibited at the New Art Gallery, Walsall (2011) Vilma Gold, London (2010), South London Gallery (2010), Tate St. Ives (2010), the Hellenic American Union, Athens (2009), Peres Projects, Berlin (2008) and BALTIC, Gateshead (2008). Titchner currently lives and works in London.
