Mark Ashton Vey is a British painter. Having played in the band ‘Rare Bird’ for 2 years, he has lived all over the world composing music in his solo career and pursuing his painting. He now lives in Nice, on the French Riviera. His work explores musicality and movement through the medium of paint and a vibrant play of colour.
Simply put, Vey is a painter of trees. His surrealist canvases explores the vitality and life force found in their twisting branches and gnarled trunks. Since he spent his childhood in the Scottish countryside of Stirlingshire, trees have held a profound significance for Vey and in a way, form part of who he is.
