About the artist
Adam Markovic is an American artist born in Chicago in 1972.
After attending the Northeast Missouri State University where he received an education in Fine Art he moved to New York to pursue a career in painting. Here he co-owned and operated a Fine Art material store. Here Markovic produced hand-made materials for local artists based on traditional recipes derived from techniques used in creating the Old Masters.
In 2000 Markovic moved to Florence, Italy where he studied at the Charles Cecil Studios. At this institute he was given a curriculum modeled after the major Realist ateliers of the 17th and 19th century. He later became a studio assistant at the Studio. After some training he began teaching drawing, composition and the principles of the “sight-size” method.
In 2003 Markovic returned to New York where he opened “Oil and Wood”, a woodworking atelier. Here he designed and built bespoke furniture pieces which can be found in several private collections throughout New York.
In 2008 he moved back to Florence where he founded “Studio Santo Spirito”, located in the artisan quarter of Santo Spirito, focused on teaching fundamental drawing and painting techniques.
Markovic currently works and lives in Montreal, Canada. His work is represented by galleries in Italy, Belgium, Luxemburg and Canada.
