|About the Artist:
Marcus was born in 1968 in Detroit, MI. His first introduction to art was at the age of five when his kindergarten teacher asked him to illustrate a board in the classroom. He furthered his artistic skills by attending the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. Marcus credits his skills as God given ability and studying artists such as Picasso, Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden, and Ernie Barnes. In 1988 at the age of twenty, Marcus participated in his first public art exhibition hosted by Gerald Marant Gallery along with former Detroit Pistons player John Salley. The group exhibition featured nationally known artists Annie Lee, Carl Owens, and Gilbert Young. He became the first African-American and the youngest cartoonist in the Detroit News. As a free-lance cartoonist his comic strip 'Double Trouble' was published in the News and ran for three years.
In 1998 Marcus was commissioned by Daimler Chrysler to paint a mural. Later that year, he was commissioned by renowned restaurateur, Patrick Coleman for a mural. In 1999 he was featured in a group exhibition hosted by Daimler Chrysler.
As an artist, Marcus is known for his bright colors, as depicted in this piece, and his expressive use of papers and fabrics, creating a masterful textured collage effect. His figures are animated and mannerist in approach, often stretching and twisting to impossible positions. Many enjoy stepping into his realm of colorful and unique imagery.
