From a collective list of different styles, you will find artwork which embodies the 'retro feel' to designs with a nature of obscurity which is bold and bright and captivating. Anyone can appreciate the notion that a painting, to an artist, can be somewhat of a journal and a place for thought and deep-reflection, within his own paintings, Mark T Zeilman writes of his inspiration, with various artists' portraits, the possible magic of Las Vegas, surrealism and 'traditional' style.
The talent of this particular artist lies in his ability to make his paintings and other works appear seemingly effortless. There are no signs of distress, or difficulty. This is an artist whose skill, in no shape shows signs of being amateur.
Mark's artwork also appears in another form, 'Peaceful Rage Apparel' is a t-shirt company based in Las Vegas which he owns and operates. This offers an outlet for 'up and coming' artists to show off their work in an unusual fashion.
One painting of Mark's which really stands out for me is his piece depicting various faces. This painting is technically expert, the untidiness of the background makes for a brilliant contrast with the bright, straight edged '3d' figure in the foreground. It is magically grotesque, and has a suggested theme of horror and ironically a loss for words, as this painting could easily leave you speechless dare you stare into it for too long.
Mark's endless outlets for his artwork show us that we can, break with tradition and yet still keep tradition alive with our art. With tattoo designs, T-shirt designs, Canvas, Paper, and panel work, there are many different ways to see this unusual artist. With his undoubtable skill and experience, this is someone who is contributing much more than a pretty picture to the art world. This artwork has been inspired, and therefore it inspires and I am sure it will lead to even bigger things for him.
