Mark Stephen Finein earned his BFA from Buffalo State in 1986, specializing in surrealistic wood block printmaking, lithography, and 3D constructions. After a short stint as a graphic artist, he began performing, writing, and recording music, playing in the streets of Prague and in rock, blues, and folk clubs in Buffalo, San Francisco, Germany, England, and Wales. Now that he’s shaken off the demon of representationalism, he’s proud to be showing his visual artwork publicly for the first time in two decades. Recent work has appeared or is forthcoming in P-Queue and BOOG CITY; chapbooks (collaborations with poet erica lewis) are forthcoming from Etherdome and Queue.
