An acute eye for photography, fashion and design, a natural trajectory towards utilizing all of his creative tools to make his own artwork has been a constant and evolving thread throughout his life.
He draws inspiration from his connections and relationships with people whereby turning his captured images into multi-layered, multi-media pieces which includes photography, stencil, block prints and resin, incorporating them all into his work. He continuously explores…expanding and immortalizing the people, places and objects he captures into stark and beautiful finished pieces.
Mark Oblow was born and raised on the island of Oahu in Hawaii and sponsored for both surfing and skateboarding in the 80’s (Vision, Independent, OJ Wheels, Jimmy Z). In addition, Oblow’s creative spark was clear when he picked-up the camera and had his first paid photograph published in Thrasher Magazine as a teenager.
Oblow is featured in books by Tom Adler to David Carson and in magazines such as GQ, Contrast and What Youth. He has a weekly column called, “Back Den” posted on the What Youth website.
His namesake brand, “moblow” was released this past fall in 2015 with great reception.
