Mark Cato started to paint whilest living in Barcelona 1998. He found old wooden boards on the streets and painted the streetscapes and sights of this inspiring city. Later in his Home of New Zealand it was not wood, but old windows he found and painted on.He experimented with glass a his ‘canvas’ and stuck with this material. The use of recycled material is a central element in his work. STUDIO CATO is losely linked with other innercity artists, who open their Studios twice a year for a “Circuit of Art”.
