Cold and neon coolness personified
Rattle your kinks and think
Under a fedora and behind dark aviators
Whose art is as vibrant as black is his attire
Wings made of strokes of sapphire.

Marko grew up in a small town on the Jersey Shore, in a modest middle-class family where is father was a schoolteacher and mother a housewife. He was surrounded by water and had many opportunities to explore it. He spent his days playing guitar and surfing with friends when he wasn't playing football for the local high school team. His early years were also filled with art and he developed a love for drawing and painting which led him to be somewhat of prodigy at an early age. Later at college he pursued degrees in biology and medicine- but would eventually return painting while living aboard a houseboat in the San Francisco Bay and eventually relocated to New York City- this is where things really took off for this young artist!
Since then, Stout has been the featured in numerous solo exhibition and international shows such as Art Basel in Miami. He has also been the subject of many prestigious news and magazine articles including Forbes Magazine, who posted an article entitled, “Marko Stout Continues to Wield his Supremacy as a Multimedia Artist” and Haute Living who featured and article, “Marko Stout is Changing the New York Art Scene”. OK! Magazine also posted an article about the artist saying,” Marko Stout is one of the most exciting artist working today”.
Marko Stout’s most recent sold-out solo exhibition at New York’s prestigious Kate Oh Gallery was critical and financial success with large enthusiastic crowds attending the exhibition. Marko Stout shows no signs of slowing down- he is currently devoting more time to his video art and installation projects. However, the artist has not retired from painting and his latest series titled, “Night Chronicles” will premiere later this year.
