Marko Mavrovich Paints His Story in New Video

Artist Marko Mavrovich makes no apologies for his studio. To him, the cluttered piles of paintbrushes, wood and canvases are perfection.

“It’s just one of those messy things where I know where everything is,” Mavrovich says with a laugh.

Park West Gallery provides a peek into the world of Mavrovich with its latest video. In the comfort of his studio, the California native explains how he and his Croatian parents moved back to their homeland. It was here where the young Mavrovich fell in love with the sea.

Mavrovich learned to paint from his father, a master watercolorist. At the age of 25, Mavrovich moved back to California to seek a maritime career, but 10 years later turned his artistic hobby into a career.

The artist found success in painting colorful landscapes. As he developed his techniques, Mavrovich wanted to create larger works, but found his father’s medium couldn’t accommodate his new direction. He switched to canvas and discovered the advantages of acrylic paints, which bolstered a faster painting technique.

Mavrovich continued to mature as an artist and traveled the world where he was inspired by everything he saw. His oeuvre expanded to figures, cityscapes and vintage vehicles. Mavrovich often experiments with painting on metal and wood he brings back to his studio.

“There’s always a subject matter, there’s always a country, there’s always a place, a port, a forest that I want to paint,” Mavrovich says.

Mavrovich credits this creative liberty to the freedom Park West Gallery gives its artists to try new ideas.

“I’m always expanding, and with Park West as my biggest supporter, they allow me to expand and branch out into other areas of art,” Mavrovich says.
