Marko Ristic (b. 1993 in South Florida) is a painter based between Michigan and New York City.
Marko is the son of immigrants, a first generation American who balanced the duality of assimilating his Serbian heritage while growing up in the United States.
The prejudice that ensued in his environment evolved in both physical and mental expression, and childhood memories that scar him still.
While he was sitting in an American classroom, Belgrade was being bombed. At home, he was learning of his friends and family he had lost.
The time he later spent in Belgrade fueled the tangled perception that defined his youth, due in part by the opposition of the two countries he lived in. One was under fire, while the other instituted that fire.
The opening reception will be held Saturday May 7th from 6 to 9, this exhibition opening is Invitation Only.
