John Marc Anderson has been a fabricator, an artist, a craftsman, and a designer for all of his adult life. A Washington, D.C. native, he moved to New Orleans in 2003. His use of diverse materials has always been a part of his life's work.

His art, however, is unique, powerful, soulful, captivating, and otherwordly. Collectors of Marc's work have described his art as "so unique, you seek it out, waiting for the next piece or idea that is going to be spawned, because you must have it"...

Although a Washington, DC native, Marc has lived in the New Orleans area for more than ten years, and his immersion in New Orleans life and environment is reflected in his subject matter, almost exclusively bound to architectural interpretations of the City's most iconic symbols that New Orleans natives and visitors alike will recognize and often revere.

Completely self taught as an artist, his use of advanced technology, though not clearly visible in his work, is ever present, along with practical use of a variety of eclectic media, from vinyl spackling to house paint, to wood stains, to acrylic, enamel, and oil paints, even dental bonding compound.

Marc creates each piece, or component of a montage piece, from his original scuptures, almost always a wall mounted relief format. The original sculptures are recorded using a laser scanning system, and recreated in various sizes using a high end 3-D printer, and he uses the castings to create resin reproductions which are integrated into each piece, and then embellished, painted, stained, and "weathered" using proprietary techniques that are purely Marc's creations and formulas.

One of his perennial favorites by collectors is Marc's iconic recreation of the classic New Orlean's shotgun house, and a variety of both monochromatic and color studies of these beloved buildings are often a primary subject matter found at shows and in galleries and authorized retailers.

"Old Cemetery #1, New Orleans, Louisiana", Mixed Media, including styrene foam, vinyl and joint compound, wood stains, acrylic and enamel house paints, dental bonding materials.
