MRK / Markos R. Kay is a digital artist based in London.
Currently working as a freelance Creative Director, Motion Graphics Designer, and Lecturer. Coming from a traditional fine art background, he first became fascinated with generative art during his Masters at Central St. Martins. He is best known for his artificial life video art experiment “aDiatomea” (2007), which is now a permanent exhibit at Haeckel's Phyletic Museum in Jena, Germany. His 3D generative short “The Flow” (2011) has been shown internationally as part of “Resonance” a collaboration of over 30 independent visual artists and sound designers. MRK’s films have been exhibited worldwide, including OFFF Barcelona, Pause Fest Melbourne, and Onedotzero London.
MRK's work fuses science with art, dealing with themes of emergence, evolution and complexity. He has industry experience in design having directed idents, ads, branding and graphics for major broadcast and media companies. He has also directed large-scale projection mapping events and shows as well as audiovisual and interactive installations.
