Marcus moved to Aotearoa New Zealand at age 17, attending the Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland, completing both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

His work celebrates the values, traditions, progress and sense of community and sheds light on social and political issues affecting the Pacific people in the Pacific region and in Aotearoa.

In the podcast Marcus tells of his experience at Art School at age 18 not long after moving to Aotearoa from Niue. He discusses the gestural, intuitive, graphic, lineal and figurative aspects of his work, and the ways he enjoys to make artworks.
