"Marko Stout has Charisma, Nerve and Uniqueness! and Talent!!" - RuPaul
Marko Stout’s work is an immortalisation of pop glamour; a snapshot of those rare epiphanous vibrant moments when our realities can bleed color and juxtaposition. It stretches beyond encapsulation of aesthetic and extends to an offering of meaning and an extension of culture. The urban landscapes and the people who find rapture in the abstraction of monotony are deftly depicted in the images which violently flips narratives of the human condition.
With a contemporary gaze, Stout salaciously invites the viewer to explore the darker, grittier facets of sexuality whilst alluding to the paradigm-shifting mesmerism which can be found if you allow your vision to fall into the beauty of exploration, expression and erotica.
Accolades may still fall around Warhol as the Art Pop fanatics cling to the nostalgia of his influence, yet, Stout’s exhumation of carnality holds a mirror to the disparity which lingers between true desire, and the filtered experiences we pretend to crave. With cathartic honesty, the real world is put before you, polished with a cinematic infusion of rock candescence. Void of smoke and mirrors, the art lustrously blinks with resonant realism, pulling you from the comfort of archaic Pop Art into a modern realm of unfiltered ardour.
"I don't want my art to be the image, I want it to be the meaning!" - Marko Stout
The high-priced fine art market has been in a slump with many New York galleries closing their doors over the last decade. In fact a 2018 article in The New York Time said the “New York art gallery scene is dead as we know it... however one artist has been proving that the New York market is far from dead. The New York artist Marko Stout, whom many are calling the next Andy Warhol, has reported huge sales at his last couple solo Manhattan gallery shows." Additionally, Stout has been drawing very large crowds of young enthusiastic fans with older dealers and collectors taking notice of the artist. Marko Stouts’ fans also include celebrities such as Charlie Sheen, The Kardashians, Justin Bieber, Katie Homes, Katie Couric and Taylor Swift.
