From an early age, Marcus always knew he was meant to paint. The artist was born in South Florida in 1981, where he spent his formative years determined to become the artist he is today. Leaving the south, the very place he drew his inspiration, Marcus relocated to the Mid-Atlantic, pursuing his artistic endeavors at the Maryland Institute College of Art- where he later graduated Magna Cum Laude, in general fine arts. Additionally, the artist studied in the south of France- with great traditions afoot- Marcus’ work was anything but traditional. His unique vision was solidified as he returned to South Florida.
Presently residing in Fort Lauderdale, the artist has gained much international acclaim for his artistic perspective. With works acquired by collections, both domestic and abroad; Marcus’ work can be found in the homes of celebrities, professional athletes, well-known entrepreneurs, select hotels, and art appreciators alike- his work has even caught the eye of a former American President. With representation in Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, London & Miami, Marcus’ work is widely exhibited. There’s great momentum behind this artist’s career and there’s no sign of him slowing down anytime soon, as simply put “I’ll [Marcus] never retire, how can you retire from something you love?”
