Stefan Marx: I Guess I Shouldn't Be Telling You
Stefan Marx (b. 1979) is a German artist, graphic designer and musician. He is a leading figure on the skateboard scene. He has worked with a number of specialist brands, as well as the Playhouse Records label. In 1995, he founded his own brand, Lousy Livin' Company. He is also co-founder of the Hamburg label and record shop Smallville Records, and a member of the group The Dead See.
His black-and-white drawings, flyers and enigmatic slogans reflect an experience rooted in street culture, while maintaining a critical distance that goes beyond the codes of any specialised counter-culture.
His work has been widely exhibited in Europe (notably with the collective The Side Effects of Urethane) and featured in magazines such as The Art of Rebellion and Street Logos.
