Marko Stout is a very famous name especially when it comes to gritty industrial pop style in New York City and modern urban life. Normally people are confined to a specific field. Normally people have limitations and boundaries, but Stout is beyond limitations. His productions include work from print, painting, sculpture, film, video, photography and new media as well. Many experts believe that he is a successor to Andy Warhol.

Many people say that his work is close to perfection and this compliment is justifiable for sure. He integrates digital tech in his work and gets the artistic effect which makes it even better. Then the masterpiece is impregnated in the aerospace grade aluminum which makes the Stout’s trademark vibrant and modern and it looks even better.
He had a very humble starting. He used to live on a houseboat in San Francisco Bay and he use to hang out with a neighbor friend having some drinks and weed. His neighbor was a retired roadie, Art Institute of Chicago trained painter and art gallery owner. His friend was the one who basically started giving him motivation and passed on some talent as well.
He started selling his work at his gallery and this is how Stout got an initial push towards success. His friend died by the overdose of morphine, but he did give this world a great artist indeed. Since then, there has been no looking back for him.
