Artist Statement

"These images represent the universal language of uncertainty, hope, and anxiety any child or adult would have of being uprooted by war, poverty, or the promise of a better life in a new country.? Leaving everything you knew behind opens the door for the promise of tomorrow.? We all have something to contribute to society-we all need to ensure refugees flourish in whichever country the live in. My family were refugees of World War I and these images show refugees from that era." - Mark Forton

Mark Forton aka mafMOVE is a contemporary mixed media artist. His work has been described as a “collage of abstract forms and modern POP interlocked in a digitized dreamscape.” Originally from Michigan, he used to reside in sunny California and now again resides in less sunny Michigan.
