ABOUT

Markham’s work is an embodiment of the independent artistic spirit. Whether doing freelance work through Radar Media or making art to express his relentless creative energy, Markham puts his unique stamp on whatever he does. Part of his vision as an artist is to present topics that are often ignored or shunned by the popular media. By exploring and artistically depicting his feelings on abuse and the media's exploitation of certain groups of people, for example, he hopes to give voice to the victims whose suffering is often overlooked. This represents the true spirit of using art as a healing force for the creator, and hopefully for the viewer, as well. –N. Matta
