Mark Mawson – International Recognition of his Art in Monaco
Mark Mawson is a London based photographer known for his vivid images of liquids and colourful splashes. His widely acclaimed “Aqueous” series has featured in the advertising campaigns of several leading luxury brands and most notably, was projected onto the walls of Buckingham Palace in front of Queen Elizabeth II as part of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert. Speaking to the media, Kawther Al-Abood, the president of the Futurum Association said of this year’s award;
“Once again, choosing the winner was not easy… We analysed about ten candidates and all of them were particularly brilliant and authors of work created thanks to the support and use of new technologies. In the end it was Mawson’s talent and creations that won us all over, with his colours and ability to interpret abstract concepts through the use of innovative techniques.”
Mawson is the latest in a line of notable innovators to be honoured by the association. Last year, saw American sculptor Dale Chihuly presented with the award. However, Futurum’s activities extend beyond gala evenings and award ceremonies. The association supports wide-ranging initiatives including private visits to renowned art collections and lectures by leading industry figures, all contributing to the vibrant scene of art in Monaco.
