DALE VN MARSHALL, PAINTER

ARTIST STATEMENT:

Marshall began over 25 years ago as a graffiti artist on the streets of Bath and Bristol in the South West of England. With the freedoms of expression found through rebellion comes also the gritty consequences of street culture, which, for Marshall, ultimately led to drug use and psychotic episodes. In 1999, he was sectioned in one of Britain's oldest asylums commonly known as the Cornwall County (Lunatic) Asylum. He suffered clinical depression for another 7 years until he self-discharged from anti-psychotic prescription medication.[1] [2]

Marshall has studied fine art at Coventry University.[citation needed] He completed a year studying abstract art at California State University, Long BeachCalifornia in 2012.[2]

In February 2014, a three month exhibition of Marshall's work opened at the Herbert Art Gallery and MuseumCoventry. Marshall claimed this would make him the only other graffiti artist apart from Banksy to have a 3 month independent solo exhibition in a city museum.[2]

He is managed by Vanessa Brodrick of VB Fine Art - Edinburgh and London.
