mark jenkins

mark jenkins (usa) is an internationally acclaimed american artist known for the mixed-media sculptures and street installations he places throughout urban and environmental settings, sometimes with, but often without, permission. jenkins’ process involves dry-casting everything from fire hydrants and toy ducks to baby dolls and people, often himself or his assistants, with box sealing tape, the latter often dressed to appear scarily lifelike. 
jenkins’ works have been observed lounging atop billboards, slumped over on cafeteria tables, panhandling in the streets, emanating from street poles, drowning in bodies of water, clinging to statues, overturning street signs and more in locations such as belgrade, vienna, washington d.c., london, barcelona, new york, moscow and seoul.
