About Artist Marco t’ Hart:
I’m always trying to keep things as simple as possible. In my life, but in my artwork as well.
From my work as a graphic designer I learnt it’s important to reduce info to deliver a message effectively. Instead of adding details, I remove them: less is more. So I always try to capture the essential features of an image, leaving out as many details and colors as possible and still have a recognizable figure with 3-4 bold colors (max) and as little detail as possible.
Prince is probably the best subject one could have. I’m thankful for an almost bottomless pit of colorful outfits, hair styles, guitars and characteristic poses.
