Hello and welcome to my Patreon page. So, to basics: my name is Mark Thompson, and I’m an English artist living and working in Gothenburg, Sweden. Since graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art in London, I have striven to create a life as an artist within a rapidly changing art world, not to mention a financial recession or two… Making art is central to my sense of meaning in life, and I cannot help but believe the things we make (in my case paintings) can help others find meaning in their own lives too. We live in a society where the stereotype of the starving artist as a character in the popular imagination is perpetually reinforced, yet we hold up the works of art as some of our most supreme achievements, not to mention our most expensive commodities. Patreon is enabling artists like myself to continue creating meaningful, beautiful, communicative things that enrich all our lives. If you wish to be and are able to be a patron for me, in no matter how small a way, I will be profoundly honoured and grateful.
$22.75 of $250 per month
When I reach $250 per month, I will make a watercolour time-lapse video - the resulting painting will be given to one of my patrons in a random draw (selected by my dog)
