Born in Salt Lake City, Mark Beard uses multiple aliases to create various styles and methods of expression. Bruce Sargeant, Hippolyte-Alexandre Michallon, and Brechtoldt Streeuwitz are three alter egos that allow him to create. Sargeant, a fictional 20th-century British painter, creates homoerotic works that venerate the male physique. In addition to painting, he is a noted stage set designer, having designed more than 20 theatrical sets in New York, London, Cologne, Vienna, and Frankfurt.
