About this artist
Marius was born in 1956 and began his career as a painter very early, immediately after completing four years of study at l’école des beaux arts in Warsaw, Poland. His pictorial technique already revealed a remarkable edecticism of styles. HE is one of the rare kinds of artists in that from the early beginning was able to make a living from his paintings, unlike many others who become successful enough to do this only much later on in their careers.
He started his career in France after getting spotted in Warsaw. The call of this artistic Mecca proved irresistible for the young artist, and though already commercially successful, he risked everything and moved to Paris in 1980. The art dealer that represented him at the time organized several personal exhibitions for him. Marius was very satisfied with the encouraging result of his debut before the Parisian public but at the same time he nourished his secret passion, painting in the cubist style, which he understood intuitively that cubism was one of few areas of painting that had not yet been exploited in its entirety and within which there remained much to be discovered and created.
Contemporary cubist paintings that one sees displayed in galleries are generally pastiches inspired by the great masters of the genre and of only minor interest, even if pleasing to the eye. The situation is quite different for the works of Marius, which reveal an individual personality that cannot be compared to those of any other artist. He himself has become a reference in the genre. The existence of a large number of connoisseurs and knowledgeable amateurs who appreciate and collect his work is proof that Marius will emerge as a recognized master.
