Mark Tanti - Demograffix
After completing his BA hons Degree in Community Art and Design at Greenwich University, Mark moved to Stevenage in Hertfordshire, where he set about establishing his business as a Mural and Graffiti Artist.
Mark first started off as a Digswell Arts member and had a studio at the Fairlands Valley Farmhouse and is now a Member of the Stevenage Arts Society where he currently has a studio and exhibits works at Springfield House Stevenage, the Arts Society celebrated 50 years December 2018.
His outstanding skills as a graffiti artist and easy-going nature soon attracted the attention of the young people with whom he carried out his first mural commissions. This swiftly led to a number of highly successful Community projects, where Mark worked in close contact with the local youths to create exciting artwork as part of neighborhood regeneration projects. As a result of this community involvement, the artwork that has been created is highly respected by both young and old. The artwork has never been defaced, and still looks good even after several years!
Demograffix is now well known in Hertfordshire, and widely respected for the quality of its artwork, unparalleled customer service and professional approach to each project - regularly exceeding expectations!
In the past 10 years, Mark has worked extensively for Stevenage, Welwyn and Hatfield Borough Councils and has met many of the town's local Councilors and Mayors, providing graffiti workshops for young people as well as site-specific murals for neighborhood regeneration projects.
The way the mural will be formed will be by engaging with the local Schools, Exclusion Schools and Youth Offending Teams, visiting them and attending art lessons, giving pupils a design brief to think of designs around local heritage.
Mark will then facilitate workshops where the pupils get to experience creating their very own Mural giving the young people a sense of inclusion and something for their families to be proud of.
