Make Art with the Armory / Intaglio Printmaking
Thursday, June 30 / 10AM-11:30AM
Mark Cohen is an award-winning graphic designer, marketing communications executive, teacher, painter, and printmaker. His subject matter utilizes contemporary and past iconic figures from all walks of life, including politics, popular culture, entertainment, and war and peace. Most of his paintings are strikingly large scale, monochromatic works. They have energy, impact, and size. They exhibit a sparse and concise pictorial composition that combines abstract expressionism and pop art in their execution. In these works, viewers can investigate issues of anti-Semitism, genocide, and bigotry. By using art to examine these issues, he hopes to remind viewers that we live in a world of continuing hateful biases that result in senseless killings around the world and that we should end hatred and promote understanding toward all people.
