The art of Mark Dean Veca is fundamentally about forging unlikely unions between experiences that are, if not opposites, certainly oppositional. Over the course of his 30 years making art, he has produced murals, paintings, drawings, installations, sculptures, prints, designs and other sundry inventions.

Along the way he has experimented with a range of visual styles from the loose and abstract to the obsessive and meticulous; mastering the power of the confident line, and discovering the patience required for meticulous detail and the bravado for a super-saturated palette.
