Iddo Markus

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Iddo Markus born July 16, 1979, is an Israeli artist, curator, and art collector from Israel.

Iddo deals in various art forms including painting, sketching, photographs, sculpting, and other installations. Markus is known for his various miniature installations which present hundreds of paintings showcasing a specific time period. His installations are exhibited worldwide and can be found in many art collections.[1].


Iddo Markus was born in Boston, Massachusetts, USA in 1979. That same year, his family moved to Israel and he grew up in Herzliya. In high school, Markus studied photography and served in the IDF Intelligence as an editor and photographer. Today, Iddo lives and creates in the city of Haifa.

Over the years of his life, his work has moved from photography and collages he made as a child, to his distinct sketching and painting installations he creates today.

Markus’ works flow between local and global subject matter and he varies in styles, mediums, and installation techniques. The backbone of his works features compact subjects and movement that Markus experiences in his daily life and creative process. In his contemporary works, Markus investigates the tension between the singular iconic image and infinite digital vastness while referring to Digi-Tech theories. He contemplates the juxtaposition between intimacy, personality, and the anonymity of social media photos, the figurative and abstract, and the different artistic styles and creation dynamics. Markus works with inspiration collected from both the street and the web. By doing so, he emphasizes the blurred line between privacy and public information in the overwhelming digital age[2]

Markus has showcased in both solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world[3]. He is also the co-founder of "Haneviim art space"an independant art school in Haifa, Israel. He is represented by Forte Gallery, Tel Aviv.
