Marko is a Melbourne artist who has become a favourite amongst art collectors following solo shows at iconic Kozminsky (Melbourne) and Soho (Sydney) galleries.This is his debut as actor in a feature film.

Croatian born artist Marko Maglaic believes his paintings come from a spiritual, logical, yet simultaneously chaotic, place. As an artist he strives to depict fact, myth, life, love, death and the eternal struggle of mankind. He demands his art be thoroughly scrutinized by the viewer, to discover the works’ truthful emotions – to act as a kind of raw sub-conscious, opening up new truths and providing evidence of a higher existence.
