In November last year, Mark Leeming started creating a small selection of glittered beard themed photographs. Maybe it was the festive spirit that was upon us but popularity grew and grew and what was once a small series of images has turned into a much larger eclectic collection named Bearded Brutes.
This capsule collection has lead onto a voyage of self expression and creativity for both Mark & the models themselves. Mark was able to dig deep into their influences and persona’s and create some truly visual surreal art that uses a mixture of makeup, glitter, creativity & digital painting. These vibrant, pop-art, kitsch portraits aim to feed the imagination, inspire the bold & fuel the avant garde residing in all of us…
The exhibition is up to view and will be until 10th April, get immersed.
