Artist Name: Mark Klein
Artist Location: Cortland, Ohio
Mark Klein is an artist from Youngstown, Ohio, and attended Kent State University. Mark began doodling at a very young age, and fell back in love with the craft after using it as a method of relaxing at night. He is inspired by comics, pop art, street art, Japanese Manga, anime and anything that “takes a chance.”
Mark finds fulfilment in the process of taking a bottle of black ink and transforming it into something beautiful. He finds Zen in art by losing himself in his pieces, and turning a blank medium into something extraordinary. The biggest advice he has for other artists is to draw, draw, draw, and draw some more!
