Marpi

Creative/Tech DIrection, Interactive 3D Art

About

Mateusz Marpi Marcinowski is a Polish born San Francisco based Digital Artist. His mission is to build tools that let people be creative by enabling them to create digital art that they can claim as their own. His art is interactive, scalable, and multiplatform. By creating windows into the same universe Marpi provides an empty canvas where the art does not exist until people create it.

Marpi’s career started in the commercial world for clients including Google, Microsoft, and Adobe. Currently he is working with Obscura as Director of Web and Experiential Design. The skills gathered from his industry experience transfer to his personal practice. His work has exhibited internationally including ArtFutura Roma, Contemporary Istanbul and Resonate Festival.

His work has been publicly and professionally recognized, receiving nominations and winning several awards including Golden Lions, SXSW Interactive and .NET Magazine site of the year.
