Mark Youd is an artist working in Southerndown, near Cardiff on the South Wales coast. He trained as a draughtsman and, in parallel to a successful career as a designer and technical illustrator, he has developed his personal artistic practice, challenging the traditional approach to portraiture and to painting itself. 

Mark’s experiments using traditional techniques in unusual ways resulted in the Cast series of ink monotype portraits on glass. The single, continuous, rapidly drawn line appears suspended, and the shadow it casts encourages the viewer to look beyond the surface, behind the mask, to glimpse what we try to keep hidden.
