Mark Bush


Mark Bush is a recent graduate from the Columbus College of Art and Design. He majored in Fine Arts with an emphasis in representational painting and drawing. His current artistic endeavors explore modern portrait painting with a focus in hyperrealism. He usually paints portraits of people that he knows and likes to work in a relatively large scale.

Mark has received numerous scholarships and awards from Ohio and across the country. After placing 2nd for the nation in a painting contest for the National Society of Arts and Letters, Mark was featured in the Fall 2007 edition of American Artist Watercolor magazine as an emerging artist. Following his graduation in spring 2009, he plans to continue exploring portraiture with hopes of working even larger and more representational.

One of Mark’s portraits was recently accepted into the National Portrait Gallery’s BP Portrait Award Show in London.
