About Mark Delong

Mark Delong was born in 1978 in New Brunswick. He currently lives and works in Vanouver. Delong works in a variety of media: sculpture, painting, drawing, and comics. Past exhibitions include a solo show at LES Gallery in Vancouver and group shows at Ooga Booga in Los Angeles, Little Cakes in New York, Colette in Paris, and the Abel Neue Kunst Galerie in Berlin.

Delong works in a range of media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, and sequential art. His work features a rotating cast of characters in situations both ordinary and surreal. Drawing inspiration from dreams, popular television, and the absurdities in day to day life, Delong's work combines humor with a raw and spontaneous aesthetic.

Cold Pop features three separate but related bodies of work by artist Mark DeLong: a series of six panel cartoons, a selection of ceramics, and graphite drawings. Delong combines dreamlike associations with movie and television references that, though tongue-in-cheek and humorous, border on the horrific. The vast network of associations -- anthropomorphized raisins, rabbits, and and cats -- mingle in an absured and anxiety-laden world where figures wrestle with their neuroses, boredom, unrequited lust, and romantic rejection.
