Marcus Rose, Allegra. Acrylic on canvas c2007. Large scale original art work.

The art of Marcus Rose combines realism of expression with distortion and compositional elements that fundamentally re-interpret the urban landscape. Marcus was born into an arts inspired family and worked from an early age. Later study in Australia and France refined his vision. Working and travelling extensively, Marcus’ work reflects international themes. Inspired by the op art of Victor Vasarely, Rose paints buildings of a diverse character and from a variety of timelines. “I see architecture as metaphor. I express the significance of buildings in the lives and memory of people, how the environment defines us and describes us. The significance of buildings as art and the importance of the built environment as subject matter in fine art.” Originally purchased for $5850 from the artist.
