Enoch Mack bio
Mack believes we are all created in God’s image with unlimited ability. He never wanted to be put in a box; he thinks there is more creativity outside the box. According to Mack, ‘creativity is a physical manifestation of a spiritual principle. Everything that is, was a thought first. I will be what I will to be.”

His artistic style encompasses abstract and impressionism and has been heavily influenced by artists’ Sam Gilliam, Romare Bearden and Frank Stella.

Born in Los Angeles, CA, Enoch attended Los Angeles Trade Tech College, ceramics at West Los Angeles College, interior design and photography at UCLA extension and urban planning at USC extension.
