MarcArt | Special Paint & Design | Showcase


I’ve been actively involved with graffiti and airbrush art since the early 1990s. Back in the day, people looked at graffiti as vandalism. However, general public’s views on street art have changed for the better significantly. Once people opened to it, and saw how beautiful it can be, they started accepting it as an art form. You do can call it art, I think… Graffiti is a creation birthed in one’s mind. It all gradually changed, so the entire ‘art world’ picked up on it. Nowadays I’m trying to combine my past experiences from the time I worked for a publicity agency, as a graphic designer… …right then-and-there I used the opportunity to brush-up on my software-related skills. So-much-so that now I’m able to lay-out my projects completely digitally, beforehand. I snap a photo of the wall and, subsequently, I get the directive from the client. Then I come up with a befitting design. Graffiti and special paint can be applied to literally any surface. The possibilities are limitless. Kid’s bedrooms, club houses, gyms… Always brainstorming together with the client, looking for the best options and the best, befitting design solution for any given space. Combining wall-structures with the best possible graphics. I especially love to make realistic visuals Every hair, every pore. It’s hyper-realistic… People often think: ”this has got be a photograph!” I use the ”can” (aerosol can ) as a basis, to fill-up the bigger surfaces… On canvas, though, everything is tinier. So I often get asked to do a portrait of people’s beloved-ones, or a pet or whomever or whatever… Using spray-cans and airbrush… When I’m done and I hand it over to them, I love looking at people’s eyes, seeing that it touches them and that they get all-emotional… I take an enormous gratification, in that that I have taken a part in something that is so important and meaningful to those people. And to immortalize someone by making a portrait.
