“Wildfire” by Joseph Marcou

Joseph Marcou was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. His mother was a teacher and a talented artist, so art was always a part of his life. He began drawing and making things at an early age. His parents died young and at 16 he moved to Mexico with his uncle who was a comptroller of a U.S. Commission. One night while at a concert he sketched the pianist. He showed it to his uncle’s friend, the artist Enrique Asunsolo, who realized his talent and suggested that Joe make art his career. This was his defining moment.

Joe attended the Art School of New York State Tech, majoring in commercial art, now called graphic design. He served as Art Director at several design firms before becoming National Director over four International Paper Company package design studios. His last position was Revlon’s Director of Package Design.

Throughout his long design career, Joe continued fine art painting for himself. When he finally retired from the corporate world , he was able to turn to the sheer enjoyment of creating art full time. He is particularly well known for his extraordinary floral paintings, capturing their essence with drama and unusual style. His paintings are in many private national and international collections. He has been represented by the Farnsworth Gallery and exhibits his work in many outdoor art fairs.  Joe says he is inspired by the resilience of nature and what its limitless imagination and whimsy creates.
