About


 

A self-taught artist with a passion for decoration, Marcus defines himself as a multidisciplinary art creator. His artistic world encompasses paintings, drawings, sculptures, lightings, photography, videos and installations. Among the artists who have had an influence on his development since the outset are Serge Poliakoff, Josef Frank and Tatsuo Miyajima.

 

Although Marcus likes to give his imagination free rein, like a floating electron, there has been a guiding thread running through his pictorial work since the 2000s. A characteristic feature of his paintings and drawings is geometrical and organic forms where random elements which come up in the process of composition finally melt into a structured, colourful whole.

 

The concept of the passage of time also plays an important role in his approach. Most of his recent works reflect this idea of time flying.

 

On Instagram, he presents shorts videos recounting some little stories of everyday life lived by imaginary characters. 

 

Alongside his career as an artist, he has also been developing a new, targeted way of working in the decorative arts. This approach appeals directly to private individuals and professional interior designers. He offers bespoke hand embroidered cushions and hand painted lampshades decorated with small funny characters.

 

He wrote his first novel "La Mélodie des Effluves" in 2023. A series of short stories about the passage of time during a pandemic or how a French chef and a Japanese pianist will learn to know each other during a lockdown.

 

Marcus, who comes from Brussels, is now based in Stockholm and works in both cities.
