Mark Pilon, better known as Atomos is a painter, illustrator, and designer working in Vancouver, Canada. He started his painting career in 1991, has illustrated for hundreds of magazines, and is exhibiting in museums and galleries worldwide.
"It all started the day I walked away from art school. Threw my assignments in the shower and started from scratch. I've been painting and illustrating professionally ever since". His style is retro-futurism with a twist of the pop art. Characters are bubbly and bright. The paintings are synthetic, modern, and can be described as science fiction.
Mark currently paints in his Chinatown studio and lives with his wife, 3 kids, and a greyhound named Bella. He's a member of the Jupiter Project collective and currently is senior designer at the Georgia Straight magazine.
