Marcus Kiser has no shortage of outlets for his art: comic book projects, product design, illustration, editorial magazine covers, and the ongoing, multi-genre affair “Intergalactic Soul” with collaborator Jason Woodberry. His work has been called "magical realist," "Afrofuturist," and for him personally, “an artist without limits.” His bay door is a prime example for his knack for subtlety. In the painted face of a child, he's touching on several themes: hope for the future, a love for your community, and his own personal ties to the neighborhood where his parents met. The West Charlotte High School graduate grew up not far away. Packed into his iconic, seemingly simple works are notes of classical fine art, comics, science-fiction, and a passion for social justice. His work has taken him far outside of Druid Hills, yet like the child in his Camp North End mural, Kiser continues to look toward Charlotte’s future.
