“Black and white is the colour of ancient photographs. It is the colour of longing, loneliness, the night, ghosts, time passing, memory, fragments of memories, anxiety and madness.
It is like entering into a realm of mystery and dark magic. I realized that black and white is perfect to express my personality and the imagination in my work.” Katarzyna Sliwa JOYDI
Mark Duffy is a freelance artist who works primarily with acrylics and coloured pencils on canvas or illustration board. While not afraid to use other mediums he prefers the acrylics as they dry and can be changed quickly while still producing high quality effects. This versatility allows him to change the art around to suit the individual needs and tastes of the piece.
