Internationally recognized and locally renowned, Mac Worthington continues his inspirational fine art past his studio and into your home. Each piece reflects his desire for difference and neglect for the norm.
Born and raised in Canton, Ohio also known as “Little Chicago”, Mac was privileged to be molded around a family of artists. His father John “Jack” Worthington was a local artist, well-known for this bronze sculptures, specifically busts for movie stars and sports figures included in the Pro Football Hall of Fame located in Canton, Ohio. His mother Marion Worthington was skilled in enameling and silver work. The combination of creative talent and environment made him destined for artistic success.
Serving in the jungles of Vietnam at the age of nineteen Mac interpreted the indescribable feelings of war into powerful expressions of art. He attributes additional creativeness to influences such as Hells Angels, Elvis, Bob Dylan, Marlon Brando and the 60’s era. Going back to his roots he entered the world of heavy metal. Teaching himself to weld he used steel and iron to create massive, grandiose outdoor sculptures. Becoming more skilled with his mediums, he discovered the versatile use of high tech aluminum. This skill has transpired Mac into becoming part of a rare cultural elitism. His commanding presence in the art world has gained him unyielding exposure and well deserved respect. Both abstract and functional, his art looks nothing like we already know. This artist has pushed the envelope into a new league of contemporary radical abstract art.
His work spans the United States, as well as Canada, England, France, Italy, Spain and Germany. His gallery is located in the well known art district of Columbus, Ohio and his sculpture park is located at his private estate.
Mac's gallery showcase is located in the very heart of Columbus' art district at 749 N. High Street in Columbus.
