PRPLdesigns Contemporary Artwork with a Vintage Aesthetic

Mark Viola is a multi-disciplinary artist and educator from Toronto. With a background in both architecture and visual arts, his work is rooted in a strong design aesthetic with a tendency toward minimalism and vibrant colour palettes. Drawing on his passions for pop-culture and vintage stylistic elements, Viola produces one-of-a-kind artworks that are distinct for their creative use of texture, colour layers, visual elements, and typography.
