Internationally renowned artist Mackenzie Thorpe was raised in an industrial town in Northern England during a period of economic hardship. Struggling with dyslexia early in his life, Mackenzie found salvation in painting and drawing. His work expresses an entire range of human emotion, from the special bond of love and friendship, to the importance of self-reflection and individual triumphs. His works are a tribute to the creativity within us all and are a vivid expression of hope and human spirit.
He desperately wants to make the world a better place in which to bring up his children and our children. Whilst some of his more serious pieces show the inevitable desperation of mankind and seeming futility of the human condition, he depicts beautiful poignant moments of our lives – moments, which we all understand and which show our vulnerability.
Throughout all his work there is a wonderful sense of ‘love and truth’. He feels that love can conquer all and his work is a testimony to this fact. He is an incredible man with an amazing talent, which he never abuses. He is a man of the people, a true artist.
