Graduate in Illustration and Graphic Design, Marcus HYRO Browne has been spraying paint on walls for the last 20 years. Hip Hop has played a significant role in the art he produces and he is known throughout Yorkshire for his trendy Pigeon characters directly referencing Hip hop cultural identity. 

‘Her Story’ is a new body of work portraying women of colour as powerful and vibrant beings in these digitally manipulated pieces.

Through the social enterprise, ‘Write Club’ Marcus and other experienced Artists act as mentors for creative young people in Leeds offering guidance and support. Write Club not only helps young people channel their creativity through the graffiti but campaigns to turn drab, unloved walls around the city of Leeds, into ‘Graffiti Art Galleries’ showcasing the talented artists within the collective.
