Curation 250 Presents FORMA a new collection by MARKUS SEBASTIANO
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Markus Sebastiano is a Newburyport, MA-based mixed media artist. He primarily creates exclusive large-scale artwork, murals & installations for upscale restaurants, hotels, brands, and commercial spaces throughout Boston and New England. Markus’ unique style of layering vintage paper, digital art transparencies, spray paint, acrylic, and resin has helped make his work very recognizable especially in Massachusetts. People often comment “I’ve never seen art like this before, can you tell me about the process”. He draws inspiration from textures of the past to combine them with contemporary photographic elements. Whether it’s a female portrait or a decaying city street, the same process is applied. He toggles between the digital painting world and the physical, often switching back and forth in order to chase his vision of a completed work of art. He refers to his style as “Vintage Future”.
Over the past decade, Markus has continued to gain loyal followers and collectors internationally. He has created custom artwork for global brands, celebrities and establishments such as Lululemon, Coca-Cola, SAP, Absolut Vodka, Jameson Whiskey, Lil Jon, Amanza Smith, HGTV, BRAVO, W Hotel, Yotel, Cambria Hotel, AC Hotel, Mariel, Nomai, and more. His work has been exhibited throughout the US and has made appearances at international fairs including LA Art Show and Pop-ups during Miami’s Art Basel.
