Mark Hunter Brown has a knack for representing the world in a series of compelling and illustrious images. The illustrations he creates are a mix of events inspired by his own life and moments in history that have been overlooked or overshadowed. In between the points in history which have shaped the world and future events were times where individuals simply gathered together, shared stories and each others' company.

Brown is also inspired by the local history of the various people he encounters on his travels. In taking an interest in history both global and personal, the artist is relaying the biographical through the fantastical. While not all of his illustrations derive from factual events, it is clear that Mark Hunter Brown has an amazing ability to capture the sensational in the overlooked.
