About The Client
Contemporary portrait artist Marcus Callum
Marcus is an award-winning contemporary figurative painter. Known for his realist portraits, his oil paintings fuse traditional techniques with a contemporary aesthetic.
“Marcus Callum’s painting has an arresting luminosity that matches the sensitivity of the treatment of his subject... a virtuosic demonstration of contemporary realist portrait painting.”
"National Portrait Gallery senior curator Dr Christopher Chapman,... described “Wrecking Ball” as a “compelling example of the possibilities of contemporary portraiture. While the sitter is outwardly recognisable, at the same time the portrait gives a very strong sense of a resourceful inner life and the sense of flux that characterizes selfhood. The artwork has been filtered and processed in a particularly inventive way. A very deliberate sense of perfected craft."
