Marcus Thesing was born and raised in Southern California. He became interested in art at a young age, and his father, a sculptor, influenced him to try working in three dimensions. During his time at university, he explored a variety of art courses, from figurative sculpture and drawing to computer graphics and photography, 3-D color and design, painting, and bronze casting. Thesing’s love for nature is evident in the color patterns, shapes, and overall organic look of his work. He states: “Keeping the fluidity of the glass in my forms has always been a focus. The layers of glass, color, and negative space invite the viewer to discover the lines created not only outside, but inside the form.” Thesing currently lives and works in Laguna Beach and frequently exhibits at the Festival of the Arts.
