Marcoart was born on the Streets of SOHO in the 80's and exploded in the Lower East Side in the early 90's, turning one of Manhattan's most beat up historic neighborhoods into the celebrity-studded Hipster stomping ground that it is today.
This success is due to Marco's tireless, self-promotion of his unique goofy brand of POP Art, that is one part genius and one part luck, and 100 percent pure determination.
Marco himself was born in New York City and barring an accidental twist of fate will most likely die here, a phone in one hand and a sharpie in another.
When it comes to marketing and self-promotion, co-branding and straight up shmoozing, Marco is in a class by himself. Many of his biggest collectors are hard-pressed to find the seam where the art ends and the artist begins and Marco wouldn't have it any other way. Life, to Marco is a work in progress and he seems forever entangled in it's tentacles.
"Dog Eat Dog" "World Peas" and "Pussy Whipped" are more than some of Marco's more famous calling cards, they're mantras that he tries to, or in the case of "Pussy Whipped" tries not to, live by.
Marco's art has often been compared to that of Keith Harring, Romero Britto, and a bunch of other fine artists, and while no artist can claim that their art is completely unique, Marco likes to think that one of his more prominent traits; his quirky whacked out sense of humor which always manages to pull him through the stickiest situation is reflected in all it's idiosyncratic bliss in his pieces.
It's no accident that beside Paintings and Prints, Marcoart can be found on pretty much every possible imaginable product, this stems from Marco's desire to reach as broad an audience as possible, and since not everyone who likes Art goes to art galleries, Marco delivers his wacky designs to the stores they shop in, at events that they go to, on the walls of streets they walk down, and on products they buy for themselves, their wives, husbands, or kids.
Marco is a guy who can't sing, has no rythem, is a fun guy to go out with, and was born with a bottomless supply of energy and blind ambition which, to the great relief of the general public, he seems to have managed to channel into his own brand of POP Art, which is in itself is exceptional since it's hard to say what kind of trouble he would have gotten himself into if he hadn't!
