Through painting, animation and print Mark Hayward explores themes of identity and the individual using his faceless comic characters to construct fantasies that are at once both strange and familiar. With a sense of the documentary his on going body of work builds into a catalogue of characters and comic situations that heavily reference the world around him. Within this basic framework there are themes that Mark returns to, feeling drawn to the military, childhood, national pride and uniform, all of which give a strong visual identity for the artist to play with. His latest paintings are inspired by the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations and the ongoing Falkland Islands dispute.
