About Mark


New Zealand born artist Mark Cross is considered one of the South Pacific’s leading contemporary realist painters. Dividing his time between studios in Auckland and the central Polynesian island of Niue, Mark Cross works are sought after by collectors from the Pacific rim and further afield. Employing landscapes often with people in them, Mark Cross works are well known for imparting a social message that speaks of mankind’s delinquent abuse of his home the Earth. They speak of the world but are intrinsically Pacific.
