BIO

Mark Wiener (b. New York City, 1951) is an abstract painter who studied under Bauhaus influences at Philadelphia College of Art, where he focused on painting and photography. Driven by visionaries Alexi Brodivitch, Frank Zachry and Alexander Lieberman, he developed an open mind toward working in simultaneously in several disciplines.

Devoting his first years to photography, Wiener, based upon observations of Irving Penn’s process, he conceived of an approach to painting he calls, “the white surface” - an acting out of a “visual story” during the creation of the work - which became and remains a driving force, alongside the Bauhaus ideal of the underlying structure in concert with natural spontaneity. In Wiener’s latest works it is manifest as his organic gesture of throwing, dripping and pouring paint, orchestrated between drawing and painting layers of geometric objects

Based in Manhattan, Mark Wiener has exhibited in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Milan and Tokyo, and regularly in New York City . His work appears in numerous private and corporate collections worldwide and the permanent collection of the Housatonic Museum of Art. Honors include participation in the Felissimo Tribute 21 program benefiting UNESCO, commissions from the WFUNA and Croix de Croix de Chevalier de’orde Belgo Hispanique under the patronage of Queen Fabiola of Belgium
