Marc Scheff (American, b. 1976) is an award-winning fine artist who developed the unique layered and sculptural painting method using a specialized ArtResin. He studied Computer Science at Harvard before earning a degree in Illustration from the Academy of Art University. After moving to New York, he shifted from a career in illustration to a focus on fine art, when he developed his layered resin work.
In his fine art work, Marc explores themes of internal conflict, both individual and societal in scale. His layers evoke secrets and hidden worlds which we all observe, regardless of how or if we see them. His figures challenge the viewer to examine their role in such conflict and to fundamentally accept the work to be done in a current conflicted state.
He has shown in galleries and museums across the US in both solo and group exhibitions. Galleries include Rehs Contemporary (NYC), Haven Gallery (New York), and Corey Helford Gallery (Los Angeles), among others. His work has decorated books, magazines, and even video games, as well as art annuals like Spectrum and Illustration West. He has also appeared in Beautiful Bizarre, Create! Magazine, and Juxtapoz.com.
He currently lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife, two wonderful children, and one heroically relaxed dog.
