Mark Ollinger

Biography

Mark was born in 1988 and grew up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  After graduating high school Mark began freelancing in graphic design and illustration and working at a silkscreen print shop for a year. Mark then started his own project, Duality Clothing, a clothing line that became his full-time endeavor. During this time Mark was painting daily and six years after owning and operating Duality Clothing Mark decided to pursue his passion for creating paintings and sculptural works. In 2015 he embarked on an ongoing body of work of unsanctioned public sculptural installations in Canada and abroad including Melbourne, Los Angeles, Toronto and Montreal.  Self-taught, with no formal training Mark now works full time as an artist. He has gallery representation in Vancouver and Calgary and has been based in Vancouver, British Columbia since 2009.
