Marc Horowitz: Creating Art at the Junction of Different Media


It is always fascinating to see how people master different skills all at once. Through diligence and perseverance, a person can become a multitalented master whose capacity to combine various media and merge them into one is simply ingenious. The effect of such versatility is especially palpable in art when artists create something extraordinary, something that has never been seen before. A bright example is Marc Horowitz, a ‘jack-of-all-trades’ in the world of contemporary art.

Marc Horowitz (b. 1976) is an American Los Angeles-based artist who does not stick to one particular style or art medium but tries several ones simultaneously. The aptitude for experimentation lives deep in the artist’s heart. As a seventeen-year-old boy, he entered Indiana University Bloomington to receive his degree in Business Marketing and Microeconomics. After that, Marc Horowitz embarked on studying painting at San Francisco Art Institute and then gained his master’s degree from the University of Southern California in 2012. 

Marc Horowitz is widely known as an artist working in mixed media art, who combines painting, drawing, photography, video, sculpture, and performance in his art. At first, it is hard to imagine such a variety to be mixed together, but Horowitz has already proven that, for him, the sky is the limit. 

What Marc Horowitz does is he explores his life through art. When you look at his paintings and photos or watch his TV shows, you actually learn about the world, life, society, and people through his eyes. Thanks to the use of various media, you can look at modern-day reality from totally different perspectives so to get a complete picture of what is happening today. 

Works by Marc Horowitz have been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Geneva, London, and other major cities around the world. If you want to take a look at the art of this contemporary master, you should pay your attention to his upcoming solo exhibition Diagrams for Living at NO Gallery in Los Angeles, which will start on November 12 and run through December 13, 2020.
