Mark Jenkins is an American artist most widely known for the human figure installations he creates using packing tape and other materials. His work humorously addresses themes of social isolation, but with the idea to bring humanity together rather than pull it further apart. On the street passersby are absorbed unknowingly into his scenes as actors on this stage. Jenkins has shown his work in major cities including Los Angeles, New York City, Tokyo, Moscow and London. He currently lives in Washington, DC.
