Profile: Mark Lagu
Throughout a 14-year career in the animation field, Mark Laguë always maintained time for his personal watercolor painting. Both the training he received in the animation industry and his years of watercolor work are brought to bear in the distinctive oil paintings he has been creating ever since making the leap to being a full-time painter in 2002. His inspiration is found in the urban life and architecture of cities around the world. His style projects the movement, energy and essence of life in the city. Laguë's work has been featured in many juried and solo exhibitions across the United States and Canada and has received multiple awards of excellence.
"My goals for the future in my art are simple. To more and more paint what excites me first, and to move away from painting what the market demands. I think, first and foremost, collectors are looking for sincerity in artists' work."
