louis-markoya

Louis Markoya is currently exhibiting at the Bruce S. Kershner Gallery at the Fairfield Public Library.   Louis Markoya grew up in Fairfield, CT.  He taught himself to paint like Salvatore Dali, became Dali’s protege’ and spent the next five years working with him on many projects, including setting up the Salvatore Dali Museum in Spain.    His work is a bridge between classical and cutting edge contemporary and is at the forefront of leading art technology.   The work featured in his current exhibit at the Kershner evolved from surrealism and represents the mind, thought and mysteries that surround it.   Visit the Kershner Gallery to see the work of this very promising artist.
