Interview with Kisany. Thank you Carole Fredericq.
Proud to be part of Stockholm Design Week from September 5 until September 11 at the Galleri Hind, Stockholm with the exhibition "Hej på dig". The new collection of hand embroidered cushions and hand painted lampshades will be on show.
"Hej på dig" - New hand painted lampshades
Launch of a new series of lampshades. The lampshades are inspired by the Swedish way of life and the rhythm of the seasons. With all the characters of the Molly Wolly Marcus Show painted by hand, each model becomes a unique object of decoration. The overall vibe is fun and chic with neutral tones which will look great in any settings.
"Hej på dig" - New hand embroidered cushions collection
Launch of a new series of cushions. Marcus presents " Hej på dig ", an interior collection of hand embroidered cushions full of amusing and naive characters inspired by the Swedish way of life and some Scandinavian traditions. This series is made up of 12 unique designs with an original vibe. A collaboration with Kisany, a Belgian social enterprise.
"If walls could talk, between hope and despair."
"Marcus is pleased to invite you to a new exhibition of paintings at the Galleri Hind, Hälsingegatan 33, Stockholm, from February 11 to February 13.
Painted two years before the pandemic, this series of artworks never exhibited reflects the silence of the witnesses of our time and plunges the viewer into a journey full of hope and despair.
Marcus imagines and paints the walls without detour. He paints them as they are. He picks out the details that magnify his subject. A word. A crevice. A drawing. A signature. A trace of moisture. A symbol. A tag. A crack. The walls of ancient Venetian buildings, old Italian palaces or Roman villas from another era. Walls here or elsewhere. Marcus leaves us alone standing in front of his paintings, those walls, the history, our stories.
Marcus has developed a visual language on the border between figuratism and abstraction. He shapes his painting like a mason builds his wall then methodically he creates the patina of passing time with sand and other mortar. He finally signs his work with geometric forms as others would mark them with graffiti. He sketches the plans of future imaginary cities on walls filled with history. Angles, lines and curves redesign the canvas and blur the viewer in a final act, between past and future, reality and illusion, hope and despair."

Exhibition of my new wallpaper "Le marché" at "Schmaltz Bar and Delicatessen" in Stockholm. On view until February 16. This is an example of how to adapt my vision of art and interior design to a specific environment. The theme reminds of those typical "échoppes de marché" we can see in Paris or Brussels while the colors and the illustrations of fish, shellfish, vegetables and game fit perfectly in this private room closed to the kitchen.

Solo exhibition at the "Bar à vins" in Stockholm. Selection of the newest drawings of the series called "The Molly Wolly Marcus Show". The challenge is to propose a series of drawings that fits in the so cosy and typical ambiance of a real "Bar à vins". The funny and serious but not too serious characters of this series are matching with the unpretentious and family friendly style of this french bar. Hanging the works on the mirror gives another perspective on the entire room.
