February Featured Artist: Mark LaPoint

Posted on 01/31/2018

Mark LaPoint was born in San Francisco and raised in the Pacific Northwest. He grew up in a dark and rainy place, where drawing and painting were creative outlets to pass time while stuck indoors.

As an adult, LaPoint moved to Pasadena, Calif., and later graduated with a bachelor's degree of fine arts from Art Center College of Design.

After that, LaPoint embarked on a 25-year career in graphic design and has worked on regional and national advertising accounts.

While in Los Angeles, LaPoint was inspired by the street art and graffiti, and he has tried to employ the free flow of visual ideas with fluid media in the creation of his art.
