Marko Stout is a famous contemporary artist exhibiting his work in New York City and through online genres. His art work includes many short films and small theater exhibitions depicting the emptiness of modern life wherein the inner self is lost and is vacuumed in by the chaos all around.
Microcinema is one of the favorite mediums of contemporary artist s to ventilate their thoughts. It is usually a low budget film shot through personal video cameras or a low budget exhibition which screens a series of shots or images. Although the medium is seemingly simple, the subject is quite dense. Quite similarly to paintings and photographs, Micro-cinematic production is also successful in conveying the deep thoughts of the artist.
Some of his famous works include the ‘Martini Dog’, ‘Graveyard of Buried Hopes’ and ‘Dysfunction on 14th Street.’ All of these works and many others are short films based on the hollowness of the common man and woman sharing with each other the gloom and despair which is the gift of the modern world. The general theme that they follow is losing the inner self to the outside, which according to Marko Stout, is the ‘greatest hazard’.
The works of Marko Stout have been critically acclaimed and in 2012, his film was even ranked as #3 amongst the top ten ‘Must See’. The works of Marko Stout are up for sale through exhibitions and through online medium. One of the very famous films is the ‘Martini Dog’ which was sold this year through the Spectrum Exhibition for $64,000. The interesting thing is the signature of Marko Stout giving this print of ‘sophisticated urban canine’ a semi-autobiographical note.
