Framed: Mark Whalen
The colourful and geometric artwork of Mark Whalen.
Mark Whalen is a Los Angeles-based artist working across painting and ceramics. His two-dimensional artworks often portray a geometric and curious world, laid out across grids with patterned elements and humanoid beings.

His work has featured in over two dozen exhibitions, and remains in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia.
