  3. d'Art enter presents "Dynamic: 2nd Annual Juried National Contemporary Art Exhibition" and Mark Fussell: Spray Paint Artist

    d'Art Center

    Dynamic features artworks produced ONLY within the last 2 years. This is an opportunity for artists to showcase their current style, aesthetic, and/or bodies of work regardless of theme, medium, or content. Markus Fussell is a self-taught spray paint artist from Norfolk,VA. While also serving as a therapeutic and healing way to release tension, the most important aspect of art to Markus is how it challenges what we know, and what we have been taught. He has been painting on the streets and at live events since 2007. Because he only uses spray paint he is able to paint some pieces in a very short time, sometimes in just minutes. Although his roots are planted in 80s street art and early Science Fiction, he also loves to challenge the existence of human life itself.
