Joe Marko, Chicago
Member Since May 2011
Artist Statement Born in post-World War II Europe after his native Lithuania was absorbed into the Soviet Union, raised in Chicago's Back of the Yards, economic and ethnic conflicts formed a backdrop for Joe Marko's youth. Developing a love for visual art during these years, he first tried his hand at works featuring landscapes and animals before realizing, well, he didn't know much about either. So he turned to the subjects at hand and found the panoramic symmetries and asymmetries of his city to be his true artistic calling. Joe hopes to illustrate and convey the soul in the merely material, and the humanity in the harsh lines and cold shapes that surround us.
