Mark Gerard Brogan was born in London where he studied art as an under- and post-graduate at Goldsmiths college. For over 15 years he has been living in Belgrade working as an artist and translator. As a resident in Belgrade – a foreigner in the “relaxed”, “bipolar” position of belonging – in his watercolour paintings and collages he reads society’s problems from the cracks, fractures and overlapping of socio-politico-historical phenomena.
He first exhibited in Serbia in 2010 at the Belgrade Cultural Centre showing an experimental film about an artist-run telephone call-centre. In 2017 he exhibited the large-scale photo-wallpaper “Unforgetting Aelita” in the courtyard of the Gallery-Legacy of Milica Zorić and Rodoljub Čolaković, and more recently participated in the 13th International Aquarelle Biennial in Zrenjanin, Serbia and his exhibition “Shadowy Stories” was held at Remont Independent Art Space in Belgrade. His works are in amongst others the collections of Deutsche Telekom and the InterSpace Association, Sofia, Bulgaria – Transitland. Video art from Central and Eastern Europe 1989-2009.
