from MSA ART:

Artists & Art enthusiasts around the globe have admired the drive and determination of this youthful artist...vibrant colors and a whimsy unlike any other, Marcus' art has been displayed, honored, and collected by the influential as well as first timers who have just recently been exposed to the magical transformation his art brings into existence. Share his journey through photographs, poetry, and illustrative projects in his pursuit of excellence in the art world.

"I love art. All types of art inspire me. From drawing and doodling, to painting and sculpture, I have always had a passion to create. I feel like art is a way to communicate to the present world without knowing its tongue. Art's inimitable fingerprint is left for future generations to examine and interpret. Art is a way to make a house feel more like a home. And to some people, art is a way of adding value to their standard of living.


A mixed media artist, Marcus explores the presence of the sacred in his everyday life as a primary source for inspiration and content of his paintings. His interest in art as a tool for social change has led him through the journey from free expression of urban art spray-painting to the innovative, creative, and unique visual presentations he now offers in his dynamic work. His art sensibilities bring a distinctive look to the variety of media he uses in creating his images. Growing up amidst the architectural richness that Chicago offers, Marcus has extended his acumen and repertoire in art through formal education, internships, and travel throughout the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean. Currently, his artwork is enjoyed by galleries, universities, and in the homes of private collectors.
