In art, the term “mark-making” refers to the different lines, patterns, and textures created. For painters, it aligns with the strokes of their paintbrush and it can be as simple as creating a line with a pen. Mark making can be used as a voice because it aids in depicting the artist’s tone without words. Artists can create sharp abrupt lines to channel stoic energy, or flowing curved edges for a more whimsical appeal. Artist, Tariku Shiferaw, used mark-making as inspiration for his successful 2017 exhibition “One of These Black Boys.”
