Sexy, stylish and chic! One of this year’s hottest Miami shows was Art Nation Gallery’s solo exhibition of famed New York artist Marko Stout, in downtown Wynwood. Gallery owner, Jason Samuels was exceptionally excited stating, “In my 30 years in the art industry I’ve never seen anything like it. Marko Stout message really connects with the younger generation and everyone loves it. Most of his work was sold before we even opened the doors.”
Many in the media including the Huffington Post and Social Magazine have been calling Marko Stout, “the next Andy Warhol”. When asked about the comparison in a recent Ralph Lauren interview, Stout replied,” I’m cool with it. There’s certainly a lot of pop influence in my work- but, I really have my own style and do my own thing. I don’t want to be limited by anything that was done in the past.”
Stout is best known for his gritty style of industrial pop and as the producer of the Edible Apple Film Festival. The international film fest focuses on avant guard and experimental films, exhibited over five days at various venues throughout downtown New York City.
The artist is especially popular with the millennial generation throughout the New York City art community and is now starting to build a large passionate following outside of New York. Marko Stout is quickly becoming one of this generation’s most relevant artists and definitely one to keep your eye on.
