Mark Jenkins (born 1970 in Alexandria, Virginia) is an American artist most widely known for the street installations he creates using clear packing tape.
Jenkins' practice of street art is to use the "street as a stage" where his sculptures interact with the surrounding environment including passersby who unknowingly become actors.
His work has been described as whimsical, macabre, surrealist, absurdist, shocking and "situationist", the latter referring to Situationist International.
