Freelance artist based in London
Marc Craig is a street artist based in London who works primarily with large scale murals, both on his own and as part of the street art collective Psychdodoodlz which he also founded in 2015. He has a broad range of creativity working within the disciplines of textiles, graphics, photography, sculpture and ceramics. He also has teaching experience both in the UK and USA.
He enjoyed a successful year in 2015 which included him live painting at the Flux Exhibition at The Royal College of Art and (working as part of Psychodoodlz) taking a 30ft banner mural to exhibit in the Tate Britain, which also saw Pscyhodoodlz help lead members of the public in creating a memory mural as part of the 'Mission to the Land of Misplaced Memories'.
In 2016 Marc completed 45 murals and was filmed for a Guinness advert in Leake Street which was launched in 2016. He also along with some of his fellow artists worked on the enormous mural for the Wahacca Day Of The Dead celebration and he has had his individual work exhibited in locations such as Chelsea and Mayfair. Other projects included being filmed with Chef Nic and Maggie Cheung as part of the episode based in London and lastly he worked on the promotional mural for the Coppafeel charity event at The Vans.
Marc Craig is very keen on collaborating with others as he feels this is a unique opportunity to stretch creative ability to new exciting levels of experience. To this end he is keen to work with schools, colleges, universities, community groups, charities and any social groups. He especially is interested in working with individuals who would not necessarily get the chance to express themselves artistically.
"We loved Marc’s work and were thrilled with the deign and piece he came up with for Festifeel. It turned a lot of heads on the day, and no doubt after the day, and really added something special to our event. Also very grateful to Marc for turning it around so very quickly and being so helpful and supportive of our charity. We really hope we can work with Marc again!"

"Our experience working with Marc Craig has always been remarkable since the beginnings, over a year ago. His enthusiasm, professionalism, and his ability to inspire and involve the community in our collaborations is the driving force for many young aspiring artists wanting to join us, and many young kids learning and embracing the creative path. Marc Craig is a perfect example of art that comes from the soul, to be shared with others, and focused on the virtues of mankind and what makes us all equal, whatever background, religion, race or sexual orientation. Chrom-Art will always support Marc Craig ventures, as they are of up-most value to the community, and we look forward to many exciting collaborations together"

"Marc did a sterling job, coordinating and making sure that our expectations were met. Often, the work done behind the scenes, to make things run smoothly, is one of the most important elements. This can go unnoticed. We loved his work with the pupils, on 'aspirations' (Reception) and the 'dragon' (Year 1)."

"The story of Epic Aims and the Church Street Mural began at the end of a series of siblings sessions for children between 6-11 about what it means to have a brother or sister with Autism. One of the parents asked ...but what about older siblings? The answer was obvious... take one quirky psychologist, who works for Spectrum, who thinks out of the box, a long term admiration for Marc Craig, the coolest graffiti artist she knew, with a background in Autism, the Pearl Centre's ability to bring people together, Falmouth town manager who was open to the idea and Falmouth Fine Arts and Decorative Society who were prepared to take a chance and fund a graffiti project and we had our answer...EASY!
Workshops were held for the teenagers who had brothers and sister with ASD (Epic Aims) to discuss what it means to have Autism and to design the mural . Marc Craig spun their words like magic into a enchanted mural which perfectly combines their admiration for their brothers and sisters with the beauty of what it means to live in Falmouth. This project was a wonderful example of a community coming together to put 'difference' on the agenda and leave a legacy for the future.
We look forward to a long association with Epic Aims and Marc Craig and we hope to paint Falmouth"
