Mark Braithwaite

Artist Mark Braithwaite

Mark's artwork has been visible in York since the 1990s.

Whilst still at University, he began pavement drawing outside the Minster, progressing to a stall selling prints, and eventually his own gallery, first on Stonegate, and in its current location on Low Petergate since 2002.

Mark still enjoys sketching outdoors, and on days when he fancies a change from painting in the studio, can often be found in his favourite spot on High Petergate, next to St Michael le Belfry church.

He was delighted to be a cover artist for Artists & Illustrators Magazine back in 2010. York Press interviewed Mark about his afternoon with their photographer.

  • Lost Connection Series

    On a snowy day early in 2004, artist Mark Braithwaite (perhaps foolhardily!) drove onto the North York Moors looking for inspiration for new paintings. Stranded in a sudden snowstorm, an abandoned phonebox stood out like a beacon, and from this the first "Lost Connection" painting was born!

    It soon came to light that British Telecom were planning to remove some of the red telephone boxes, and so Mark began a quest to record his favourite images for posterity. The "Lost Connection" series is a nostalgic look at the Great British red telephone box set in England's green and pleasant land!

    Don't forget to look for LUCY, MJ Braithwaite's trademark black cat image hiding in each picture!

    Mark's painting "Sleepy Hollow" - an oil of the picturesque village of Hovingham, North Yorkshire, in the snow, was named after much discussion on social media website Facebook! For the first time, this "Lost Connection" was printed in two sizes and also on canvas.

    There has been a lot of press coverage over the years for this series. Thanks to Yorkshire Life Magazine, The Best of British paper, The York Press, Radio York, The Weekly News...

  • Figurative Editions in...

    Prints from pencil drawings by Gallery Resident Artist Mark Braithwaite.

    Mark loves to draw. Many of his figurative oils in colour start off as a pencil study. If you've spotted him at work on his stall outdoors in York city centre on sunny days, you will probably have seen him sketching!

    Mark can also do portraits in pencil. One of the photos below shows Mark with his portraits of the first cohort of female leavers from Ampleforth College, which were commissioned by the school.
