"Mark Andrew Bailey refuses to be pigeonholed when it comes to defining his style.....
...Using a music analogy, he compares the brush stroke to a note, and the way each note is played is what creates the complexity or interest in a piece....
...'I’m drawn to the human element and subject matter that is easily relatable,” he says, then adds, “A lot of art has gone negative and dark, but I have always wanted to create things that bring people joy.”...
...While Bailey has been turning heads on a national level, winning Best of Show at the 2015 Governor’s Art Show in Loveland, CO, is extremely meaningful to the Loveland native. 'I grew up here,' he says. 'Going to the show is what exposed me to people who were doing this for a living. Now to be back in Colorado and to be eligible and then accepted into the show, let alone to win this award, it feels like I’ve come full circle.'...
