ARTIST

Oil painter, Private Artist, & mixed media.

THE ART AND PHILOSOPHY OF MARK CHALDECOTT. 

Born in southern England, Age forty nine, with nearly thirty years oil medium study and practice. Mixed media Artist with the 'oils' being the main medium. I was very young when I first started drawing and sketching. When I was about 12 years old I remember sitting opposite the Bear Hotel in Havant, sketching the architecture of the street. I trained my eye to observe many things in detail, including the behaviors of people as individuals. However it is strange that I didn't really do any drawings of people much. Inanimate objects mainly. For more information see profile As far as philosophy goes there is a lot to it. I read Greek Philosophy starting with 'The Last Days of Socrates' by Plato, I went on from there to read several schools of thought. Art and Philosophy go hand in hand.

MURALS

I've painted a few wall murals in my time, and I am getting into it again if anybody is interested, below is a fairy fantasy chalk board wall I am working on at the moment. It's far from finished, expect these images to be updated as we go on.

... right is the drawing for a fairy in the top right corner of the blackboard, more drawings are planned and then I will paint them, and then merge the whole lot into one big piece. This wall is in our home, for when the grand children come and stay. 

For wall murals, any theme can be painted to look cool. go to Murals or go to commissions. 

The Space scene; right, is a wall I painted in Paulsgrove, Portsmouth: For a lad that was into deep space 9 star trek theme.

 NOTICEBOARD.

COMMISSIONS: are easy to arrange, any subject; for example: Your house/building and grounds, your animals (especially horses and dogs) your vehicles even. Or just and heirloom landscape of your locale and choice.Prices for commissions are met when contacted, I usually frame them myself, but that is clients decision. All it takes is a photo sent. I can take from photo. An original oil painting has something a photo does not!! and lasts atleast beyond my lifetime; so they become heirlooms. And their value goes up. Interested? call Mark on 07879522757.


NOTE: Artist has complete discretion over prices of works of Intellectual property, they have copyright which does not need to be endorsed by a solicitor. Prices or values of any works may adjust again at Artist' complete discretion. At the moment most of my work is NFS because I always maintain a 'collection' to show at any exhibition.

PLANS to do an oil painting of a Welsh landscape (love the country only perused it once so far.) I have needed to come out of my area for a long time now, as far as my oil painting goes anyhow. I may have found an alternative place to paint now.
