About Dale Marshall
Though his bold, expressive paintings and drawings are largely abstract, Dale Marshall sees them as a form of self-portraiture, into which he feeds the story and struggles of his past and his ongoing effort to transform the chaos of his life experiences and memories into art. He began as a graffiti artist on the streets of Bath and Bristol, a rough, drug-filled period that eventually landed him in an asylum, where he battled with psychosis and clinical depression. After emerging from this turbulent period, Marshall began producing the lush, textured mixed-media paintings and drawings for which he is now celebrated. On a thick ground, he overlays graffiti-like scribbles, fragments of text, lines, and colors, with applications ranging from feverish and gestural to subtle and delicate, reflecting life itself.
British, b. 1974, Bath, United Kingdom
