Miami artist Mark Cherry was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1949. Moved to Miami in 1984 where he since resides and works. Essentially self-taught, the artist embraced painting as a means of expression. His paintings deal with the emotional anguish of life as it is. His bold strokes and palette are a reminder of DuBuffet and Art Brut. He is considered by his peers as one of the few authentic naïve painters of Miami.
