Marko Stout – Real Eyes Realize Real Lies

When discussing the work of Marko Stout luxury lifestyle writer Joy Donnel stated,”…today’s art collectors are no longer looking for art that’s just pretty- they want rigor and art that tells a story. As the emerging artist Marko Stout enters high-end luxury art markets, many collectors are turning their attention to the vibrancy of his work!”

Based in Manhattan, the popular mixed media and installation artist Marko Stout is best known for his fierce depiction of the contemporary female in a wildly debauched New York City. His current series are a reinvention of the femme fatale motif, exposing the modern woman’s powerful role within today’s uber-paced world. In his latest series, the woman reveal a strong sensuality in contrast with the roughness of their industrial urban backgrounds. Through these depictions, Marko plunges the viewer deeply into a hauntingly seductive and an often confrontational relationship with the subject, creating an edgy examination of creative powers of the individual to strive beyond social, cultural, and moral contexts.

Marko Stout’s “Chelsea Girls” project depicts contemporary women’s changing roles amidst the grit, energy, and excitement of modern city life. Marko discussed the Chelsea Girls series with In Hollywood Magazine as “…inspired by women who live in the Chelsea area of New York City. Unlike most other parts of the city where increased rent has priced out a lot of the original character within those neighborhoods, Chelsea has managed to retain much of its authentic color and grit. So, often times for lunch I would go to local cafes and have a few drinks and participate in the New York pastime of people watching. In Chelsea, you never knew what kind of unique person would cross your gaze. It’s from this neighborhood’s vibrant, gritty existence and the many authentic, unique characters within it that is behind the inspiration and energy for this project … the frequent use of vibrant colors such as red, orange and yellow serve metaphor for excitement and energy of New York City- capturing patterns and rhythms of city life. The subjects are portrayed as unaware of the gritty, fast-paced environment surrounding them. Examining their role in contemporary, fast-paced society and showing the human spirit in its most raw form.”
