Provocative Art is the trading name of artist Mark Roberts. Born in Birmingham, Mark was educated at the esteemed Moseley School of Art. His early career in retail design and development produced a number of interior design concepts for well known blue chip retailers. Mark’s real passion however, lay in painting.

Following a number of successful exhibitions both in the U.K. and Europe, Mark has now established himself as progressive artist. His strong contemporary style has been popular with collectors and individuals looking for private commissions.

Mark creates art in honour of a woman’s femininity, beauty and sexuality. A collection of Mark’s original paintings, drawings and glass mosaics as well as limited edition prints are now on permanent exhibition at The Provocative Art Gallery near Hinkley in Leicestershire.

“Most commissions come from women who want a painting that makes them feel good about themselves. My aim is to not only achieve that, but to exceed their expectations. Nothing gives me greater pleasure.

A photograph captures a moment in time, an original painting, drawing or glass mosaic lives on forever. It is unique, a statement, an investment, something to behold.

Be indulgent, live out your fantasy and give your partner a reminder of why they fell in love with you.”
