THE MAROK FACTORY LINE
This is the Marok Factory Line Powsurfer by Asmo. Color is Blunt X Wolle.
Thomas Marecki aka Marok – born and raised in Berlin – is a true luminary regarding art and design in the Skateboard, Snowboard and Surf and especially Street-Art Scene in Europe. In the year 1995 he founded the legendary Lowdown magazine where he set a landmark for that upcoming street culture by creating new and uncommon ways of representing this new kind of underground lifestyle.
It was a movement against the ordinary establishment and shallow mainstream which had a huge influence on the scene until today.
To come straight to the point: Marok was a major enabler for the next generations of art and design in that genre.
In 2015 – after 20 years and 100 issues – he decided to stop Lowdown to get away from boredom and habit (because of inexorable digitalism too), breaking new ground and pursuing new projects.
His art is versatile and never apposite to describe it in a few words. Maybe the artist himself can do it best and in an authentic way by saying: „I want to create a parallel approach to everyday things, connect and couple things that are otherwise viewed as disparate elements and thus create a present that is absurd and real at the same time – just like today‘s reality.“
