About Mark


Well versed and adept with numerous artistic mediums, Mark has concentrated his focus since the year 2004 by working strictly with a reclaimed material. A rather unlikely choice for which he creates fantastic sculptural works using nothing more than mere corrugated boxes, non-toxic glue, a razor knife, a cutting edge and mat. Artwork that is intriguing and unique because of its composition but also cries out making the visual statement: reduce, reuse, recycle!

Langan sometimes shies away and dislikes using the terms “green” but none-the-less, it is a term well suited by standards today. He’s been creating this Art using reclaimed materials before the fashionable buzz words of “green” and “sustainability” became commonplace. It would be naive’ for him to claim that he’s making a huge dent in reducing waste material going into landfills but as he states, ‘It is something rather than nothing.” His sincere hope that his Art displayed on this site contributes to the recycling movement by inspiring others to ask of themselves, “What can I do to help?”

Mark has had a successful campaign by marketing and targeting his Art to many diverse venues unlike your typical Sculptor. Those facets include artwork commissioned by paper, corrugated manufacturers, packaging companies, recycling firms, green industries, organizations and related events. His artwork currently adorns the boardrooms and lobbies from small to prominent firms throughout the U.S.

So much recycled art hasn't shaken off the chaos of the landfill. Mark has brought order to the mess, which says a lot.
