Ink helps bring to life Scentre Group’s vision for reconciliation. Its mission is to educate communities, to demonstrate respect for and work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to embed positive cultural change.

Mark first started painting while in Year 9 at Warren Central School, where he completed a two-week workshop with well-known artist Max Connellan. His talent was immediately evident and Mark received the ‘best painting by a male’ award. In 2000, Mark helped paint Yetta Dhinnakkal (meaning ‘right pathway’), an aboriginal correctional centre situated at Brewarrina NSW. Mark’s paintings have started gaining recognition over recent years and he made the finals of the Fishers Ghost Art Awards in 2008 and 2009.
