This pop art master has a very unique and interesting story of how he got to where he is now – a renowned contemporary artist withsold-out exhibitionsin the galleries of New York City. It all began in his boathouse in San Francisco Bay. This young artist-to-be used to sit on the boat drinking wine and smoking weed with his neighbor who used to be a Grateful Dead roadie and was a painter trained inArt Institute of Chicagoand an art gallery owner. You can perhaps guess how this person became so relevant to the story ofMarko Stout’s rise to fame.
The painter shared his artistic knowledge with Marko and ended up selling Marko’s art in his gallery! Unfortunately, not long after that, the former roadie was found dead from a morphine overdose by some kids. Not really a happy ending, is it? But for Marko, this was just a beginning.

Soon, Stout moved and settled in New York City. That turned out to be one of the better decisions of his life.
We could easily say that, by 2016, Marko established a big group of fans and was getting the recognition he deserved for his art. His 4 enormous,stunning female sculptureshe exhibited at the Grand Entrance of the famed ArtExpo Show in New York City drew the attention of a Berlin nightclub owner and art collector. He bought the sculptures making that the biggest purchase in the history of the show!
