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 pursing his painting. He now lives in Nice Côte d’Azur in France. 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 his childhood spent in the Scottish countryside of Sterlingshire, trees have held a profound significance for Vey and in a way, form part of who he is.
