I am an artist and illustrator based in the North West of England.

In my artwork, whether the subject is landscape, animal or human, I try to create images which have strong structural or graphic elements, as a consequence I am influenced by artwork found in comics, propaganda art and film posters.

Using various media, I often use a "dark to light" technique whereby I add highlights and shadows to "carve" the subject out of a mid-toned background.

My paintings, prints and cards are on sale in Lancashire at the Art Shop in Bury Art Museum, Olchon's Gallery in Ramsbottom and the Haworth Gallery in Accrington.
Original artwork and open edition prints are also for sale on the Saatchi Art website.
My work is held in private collections in the U.K., U.S.A., Germany and Japan.

I am a member of Bury Art Collective, a network of people involved in the creative arts.

More of my artwork is on view on Instagram: dennismarkuss_artwork, and on the Facebook page: DennisMarkussart.
