“Jocund” by Marcus Gallery Value: $950.00 / Adopt It No w: $35 0.00

Within his   work,   Marcus   explores   both   surface   and   implied   depth.     Utilizing   methods   steeped   in   tradition,   he   manipulates   space   and   form   upon   the   canvas’   two-­‐ dimensional   surface.     He   combines  these   techniques   alongside   urban   inspired   media,   such  as  spray  paint,  which,  he  acknowledges,  as  flat,  color  elements  to  complement   the   established   depth   and   form.     Marcus   is   inspired   by   this   duality   of  both   technique   and  subject,  as  it  parallels  his  life  of  tradition  and  the  unconventional.         Marcus’  work  can  be  seen  at  the  Markowicz  Fine  Art  Gallery,  Miami  Design  District,   Miami,  FL;  Soho  Myriad  in  Atlanta,  GA,  and  Los  Angeles,  CA,  and  in  London,  England     www.marcusfineart.com  •  marcus@marcusfineart.com  •  954.821.6661   716  SE  7th  Street,  Fort  Lauderdale,  FL  33301
