Detroit Artist Mark Sarmel Unveils New Body of Work at AtomArt Gallery

With a blend of anime and action characters, Sarmel is telling high-concept stories through his artwork

Mark Sarmel’s latest body of work is a continuation of his bold, comic book-inspired roster of characters that blur the lines between action heroes, exaggerated anime characters and detailed storytelling. CultureShift talks with Sarmel about his latest work and what we can expect from his upcoming show at AtomArt gallery in Ferndale.
