Mark Houghton is a UK based visual artist. His work ignores hierarchies, and explores the boundary between painting and sculpture, and abstraction and figuration. His work often combines different materials that reference the built environment, and may be inspired, and include objects found in such locations.
Born in Warrington, Mark gained his first degree at Middlesex University (formerly the Hornsey School of Art) and subsequently at the Cardiff Metropolitan University (MA Fine Art). His work appears regularly in both group and solo exhibitions and has recently been acquired for private collections.
