One of today's most collected and sought after artists, Mackenzie Thorpe has now establised himself with an International reputation.
He was raised in the industrial town of Middlesborough in Northern England during a period of long economic hardship. Struggling with dyslexia early in his life, Mackenzie found salvation in painting and drawing. His works express an entire range of human emotion, from the special bond of love and friendship, to the importance of self-reflection and individual triumphs. His works are a tribute to the creativity within us all and are a vivid expression of hope and the human spirit.
He desperately wants to make the world a better place in which to bring up his children and our children. Whilst some of his more serious pieces show the inevitable desperation of mankind and seeming futility of the human condition, he then shows us that there is also hope and love. Using animals as well as people, he depicts beautiful poignant moments of our lives moments, which we all understand and which show our vulnerability.
Throughout all his work there is a wonderful sense of 'love and truth'. He feels that love can conquer all and his work is a testimony to this fact. He is a special man with an incredible talent, Which he never abuses. He is a man of the people, a true artist.
