New Represented Artist: David Bethell
Mark Devereux Projects are delighted to announce David Bethell will be joining our roster of represented artists.
Having worked with David through MDP Associates and followed his development during his recent MA at Central Saint Martins, we are proud to be supporting his practice at this pivotal point.
“I have known David for over 10-years, since first meeting as peers at Staffordshire University. Throughout this time I have keenly followed his career and practice trajectory. We feel this is an important period following his recent MA to work with David in extending his research and exhibition opportunities.” [Mark Devereux]
“I’m really pleased to be invited to work with an organisation that is doing something different for artists and their work. The focus is about development and creating new possibilities with the artist’s interests at the core. I am excited to see where this might take work and practice.” [David Bethell]
