Profile on Mark Webster

Mark Webster
Cubism is defined as a French school of painting initiated in 1907 by Pablo Picasso, the Spanish painter and sculptor (1881-1973) which
features multifaceted surfaces of geometrical planes.

Mark Webster is not only a cubist but an incredibly prolific and versatile artist.  A fellow DailyPaintersInternationalArtGallery member, he's well known for his cubism and futurism paintings. And I don't think any other artist on DPIAG does anything quite like what Mark does with this genre. His work is extraordinary although I love his palette knife landscape paintings the most.

I also discovered that he's a gifted figurative painter as well.
