About the Artist

Marcis Curtis is an American artist living in St. Louis, Missouri. He holds a B.A. in international relations from The Colorado College, and has received a powerful, yet informal, education in design and art-making through his friends and colleagues. He is interested in the dynamism that arises when art intersects with other practices. Marcis shoots photographic images, draws, paints, sculpts, and learns constantly. Currently, he is creating art that activates space and engages viewers, challenging them to stop, experience a moment of wonder, and ask questions.

Curtis, who has shown work nationally and sold internationally, was selected for the Dean’s Award for Artistic Excellence at the University of Maine for his photography. He is inspired by artists such as "Andre Cartier-Bresson":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Cartier-Bresson, "Gerhard Richter":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerhard_richter, "Alex Grey":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Grey, "Mars 1":http://mars-1.com/, "Jeff Soto":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Soto, and many others.

For Marcis, art-making is problem solving. Commissions are particularly enjoyable, giving him a new puzzle to work out.
