Mark McClelland

Creative Director

Mark brings a working lifetime’s experience in art and design to Cultural Capital’s clients.

Mark previously founded and led the creative agency DesignTroupe, which won more than 50 design awards before becoming part of the PWW group. Between that career and the founding of Cultural Capital, Mark developed an art practice as a sculptor and public artist, combining his interests in design, landscape and art. During that period Mark was awarded the prestigious sculpture prize at Sydney’s iconic Sculpture by the Sea.

Not content with the constraints of a single artist practice, Mark founded Cultural Capital to offer a comprehensive end-to-end public art service to clients anywhere in the world.

Embracing collaboration across cultures and disciplines, Mark has worked in Asia, the Americas and Europe. He is a member of the Design Institute of Australia and has graduated from the College of Fine Arts, Sydney Institute of Design, the University of New England and the Sturt School and also holds qualifications in Environmental Management and Permaculture Design.
