ARTIST STATEMENT: Born in Juarez, Mexico, and raised in Dallas, Texas, Marka27’s foray into the art world began on the city’s streets mastering the art of graffiti. Earning his BFA from The Museum School of Fine Arts in Boston, Mass., Marka27 became a household name for his “audio canvas” series, a mixed-media collection incorporating live sound. Marka27's artwork has exhibited in galleries across the US and appeared in lifestyle magazines and books such as Graffiti Planet, Burning New York, I am Plastic Too, and the cover of Flux-Designer Toys. Marka27's collaborations include heavy-hitting brands like Levi’s, Pioneer Electronics, Scion, VH1, Disney, Converse and Kidrobot. Breaking more artistic boundaries, Marka27 created to critical acclaim MiniGods: Givers of Divine Sound©, a high-end line of designer vinyl toy speakers. His latest body of work, Neo-Indigenous, represents a fusion between ancient art aesthetics and modern urban pop culture. Returning to his roots Marka27 took to the streets, producing large-scale street art murals for The Monterrey Institute of Technology at their annual Diseno Punto MX (DPMX) design conference in Monterrey, Mexico, where he was also a guest speaker. Converse then commissioned his murals for Miami's Art Basel 2014-15 and in Brooklyn, NY for Juicy Art Fest. From street murals to vinyl toys and fine art canvases, Marka27's deft approach across varying mediums continues to draw inspiration from his Mexican heritage and experiences with race, culture and design growing up in the US. Mexican folklore and hip-hop culture form the DNA helix that influences his works. Learn more about Marka27 by visiting marka27.com.
