MASON STORM
"Mason was born in London and have been a native for 40 years. He never attended a ‘normal’ art college, his artistic education began when he was about 12 or 13. One night while attending his local youth center, his Judo class was cancelled and so he wandered into the art class where his friend was doing classes. He continued wandering in and out every night for about 15 years.
Art always remained a passion, however, he left it to one side while he began a career that was very much removed from the world of art. He cannot reveal all the details of his career path, however these are the edited highlights:
• Judo/Self Defense Instructor
• Freelance Security Contractor
• Security Consultant/Freelance Intelligence Analyst
• Journalist specializing in Intelligence/Espionage/Terrorism
• Law Graduate
• Barrister
As a distraction, Mason took to creating sculpture and was asked to take part in a show, and from then on he has gradually returned to art.
Mason’s work has been considered controversial and provocative, however he never try to be controversial in his subject matter just for the sake of it, there is always an underlying reason for the work he produces.
He is probably best known for his mask, as it has become a trademark, hiding his identity whilst creating a mystique which helps with promotion and publicity. He began wearing it when in 2010 he said he was going to reveal the face of the artist Banksy in an oil painting. The whole campaign was nothing more than a big marketing ploy, and it worked. The supposed unveiling of Banksy courted a lot of negative publicity, and the occasional death threat, nothing he hasn’t encountered many times in his previous life, but he knew the fact that he was remaining anonymous would annoy his followers even more. Secondly in his previous careers, he has met and dealt with some extremely dangerous men. There is no risk to his security, but he would rather the two worlds never meet"
