Biography
Marat Morik was born in 1982 in Novosibirsk, Academgorodok. From the young age he developed an interest in painting while visiting art school and looking through art books of the old masters. At the age of six Marat discovered Modigliani – one of the most important artists who had an impact to his art.
Even though he got two higher educations: philology and economics at the Novosibirsk State University, - he always knew that he would connect his life with visual arts. In 1998 after he got access to the internet Marat learned about hip hop culture and got into graffiti, received the skills of spray-painting and began experimenting with fonts.
In the mid-2000s Morik began working with Andrey Berger (Aber). Together they organized different graffiti and street art events including Paint Methods festival which took place in the major cities of Siberia. They also found thematic graffiti agency FGA.
During 2010s he stopped connecting his art with hip hop culture and began experimenting with subjects and techniques, mix abstract and figurative painting, learned modern art trends. He puts work with texture and material, typographic elements in the first place. Besides murals he now makes illustrations, watercolor drawings, paints on canvas.
Marat Morik has exhibitions not only in Russia but also in Europe and in the United States. He collaborates a lot with street art galleries all over the world and frequently participates in big international street art festivals in Spain, France, Italy, Denmark, Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine, Canada, the USA, China.
