Marc Riley, Newcastle upon Tyne Member Since July 2013 Artist Statement Welcome to my gallery. I am an artist based in Newcastle upon Tyne in the Northeast of England which is surrounded by beautiful countryside and coastline, as well as having a vibrant, cultural city to draw inspiration from. I have always been interested it art since a young age and have been in awe of the greats and drawn a lot of inspiration from the likes of Caravaggio, Dali, Picasso and Michelangelo to name but a few. To see their work and the lack of boundaries in their creations opened my eyes further to the depth of art and the limitless opportunity to put any vision or idea down on canvas. I have only recently started to sell my work and I hope you find something to meet your tastes.
