Brushfire by Marcus Blackwell

  • 10x10 Canvas
  • Mixed Media

  Born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in Rochester, New York, Marcus currently resides in Columbus, Ohio. An artist all his life, it has only been within a small number of recent years when he made a life-changing decision to transition from his year career of 25 years in the financial service industry to finally pursue his art career in earnest.
With a foundation in studies in Illustration at the Columbus College of Art and Design and Multimedia Production at the Columbus State Community College, he is a self-taught, mixed-media visual artist who focuses on Illustration and Fine Art.
His interests, rooted in storytelling traditions, are mainly concerned with the creation of expressionistic abstracted and figurative images which explore and depict themes and ideas related to and concerned with Afrofuturism, dreams, mythology/folklore, symbolism, and social commentary. Since 2016, many of his works have been featured in a variety of group and solo exhibitions in various venues in and around the Central Ohio region including Holler: 30 Days of Columbus Black Art at the Second Sight Project Gallery in March 2017, The Renegades of Renaissance X show at The Vanderelli
Room in July 2018, and most recently at the Spotlight Gallery of The Mansfield Arts Center in September 2022. In April 2022, he was the featured artist on PBS affiliate WOSU arts and culture program Broad & High.
