A young Johannesburg based sketch artist that creates hand-drawn detailed sketches inspired by his life experiences.  His motivation and illustration ideas came from how the world perceives the models of today, but with a vintage twist in fashion choices

With today’s trending interiors and more homes having a minimalistic, modern clean approaches, many people take great comfort in having decorative items in monotone simplistic colors. Marcel creates black and white personalized sketches to blend in with any interior, yet still showcase a unique and interesting art piece. 

Model arte studio was created to have his artwork printed on everyday household items such as cups, plates, scatter cushions, bedding, kitchenware, and many more to come.  His artwork is detailed and striking. No color is used in order not to detract from the authenticity of a traditional sketch. 

He says: ” a home is a place of not only comfort but of control.” This sense of order and organization, acts as a shield against the unpredictability and lurking chaos of the outside world”
