Making Magic Marks - the Hyper-Psych Art of Michael J Bowman (Velveeta Heartbreak or Marker Magus)
In September of 2015 Michael was evicted from his art space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and exiled to a welfare flat in Adelaide, Australia.
With nothing more than a pile of magic markers from his local 'Cheap as Chips', he created an entirely new body of work under the name Marker Magus. What can an artist create, with nothing more than a pile of paper and some cheap magic markers?
This new body of work, created during 2016-2017, consists of over 325 works on paper, and includes; junkmail surrealism, abstract drawings, automatic drawings, psychic warriors, abstract maps, fantasy portraits, women conjuring demons, surrealistic curses and more.
The complete body of work is now being offered for sale at Gallerymjb Etsy
