Mark Gmehling, from Dortmund in Germany, is a creative multi-talent who performs masterly in various creative fields. Regardless of whether he applies digital or analog skills, his creations are easily recognized. His unmistakable, fluent style reconnects his work.

Mark Gmehling creates his art mainly using digital media. This is how he designs amazing paintings that appear to be a frozen image of an animated movie or photographic image of a porcelain statue. His current serial deals with portraits without any mimic. By using a pose only, he revitalizes them with humanity, drama and expression. Reduced to using black, white and red, he titillates through playing with light and surface structures. In contrast to this seeminly motivs will be on view in large light boxes. For Gmehling this is not about piety but more about a passion towards your own church/God. The Holy Grenade” that can be found in all three pieces of art, is a symbol for the uncomprisingness of his work, be it ordered or free art. His digital paintings are made as if of porcelain, and appear to be immediate; inviting you to take a closer look in order to absorb all the details. He combines his quick-wittedness and humor in his observation of our society and expresses it with a calculated precision.
Mark Gmehling started off in 1988, as a graffiti sprayer. He then studied free art, followed by a graphic design study. He has won many renowned rewards for ad campaigns and animations and is a lecturer for digital illustrations and graphic design as well as for free artists.
