Mark Kavanagh was born in 1977 in Bray, Co. Wicklow. He attended St. Killian's School and St. Thomas' VEC in Bray.

Rasher has firmly established himself as one of the most interesting painters of his generation. He is a self-taught artist working in his preferred medium of oil paint. He has held successful solo shows in Dublin and Los Angeles, gaining international publicity and appearances on the Late Late Show. Rasher now lives and works in Wicklow Town.

His principal subject has always been the human figure in its natural environment, often solitary, treated with a vivid directness. Rasher takes influences from all the painters that have gone before him as well as his contemporaries. "We are really only an extension of what has gone before us. We are not original, we are only unique".
