Marc Bouwer, known as a fashion designer is taking us on a new journey of the imagination, personality, and story through colorful quirky portraiture and abstractions – painted mostly by Marc during the pandemic by repurposing discarded canvas, cardboard, and wood.

The faces painted with dry acrylic in colorful neon hues and black backgrounds emerge as individual personalities evoking distinct stories, allowing the mind to create a persona and experience just by looking.

Marc Bouwer has achieved worldwide recognition as an acclaimed fashion designer and creative director. He has dressed luminaries such as Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Whitney Houston, Shania Twain, Emily Blunt, Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Issa Rae, Kelsea Ballerini, Jane Fonda, Sigourney Weaver and many more.

He now is returning to his roots as a student, a time when he specialized in painting and sculpture.  His exhibition is being represented by the Six Summit Gallery in New York City, located at 510 West 42nd Street.

About Marc Bouwer:

The Marc Bouwer aesthetic is the very definition of timeless elegance, touched by his love of cinema (he counts Blade Runner, Hero, and Marie Antoinette among his favorite films). The look is distinct—lush colors, plunging necklines, and daring up-to-there slits are undeniably sexy, yet kept in check by an appreciation for classic silver-screen glamour.

Recently, Bouwer’s strong ties to L.A.’s glitterati have made him a sought-after spokesperson for the entertainment industry. As a guest stylist and judge on many popular programs, he’s become the go-to personality for advice on style and fashion. Whether making a guest appearance or spending long days designing a new collection, he sums up his professional demeanor in two words: hands on.  For more details please visit,
