“American born master artist Mark Missman first became aware of the transcendent power of art at age fourteen while viewing an original Rembrandt painting. At age twenty-one he made a commitment to live the spiritual life of a monk and for the next eighteen years his artistic endeavors were nurtured by his spiritual order, as he was given abundant opportunites for advanced study and worldwide travel while devoting many hours a day to painting. The paintings and drawings on this site, which the artist refers to as Poetic Realism, are the product of natural artistic talent, heartfelt passion, and more than fifty years of study and observation. His formal training includes the Angelo Frudakis Academy of Classic Realism in Philadelphia, the Barnstone Studios in Allentown, Pennsylvania, a private art academy in Florence, Italy, and the La Jolla Atheneum and Watts Atelier in San Diego, California. Museums, corporations, celebrities, such as George Harrison and Michael Jackson, former Monarchs the Prince of Saudi Arabia and the Princess of Iran, as well as prominent art collectors in the USA, China, and Asia have acquired Arian’s work.”
