Marcus Winter was described by his primary school teacher as being “painstakingly slow” in handwriting – and now, by turning a weakness into a strength, he is one of the quickest artists around! By believing art can make a difference he has been able to take his “live art” from the streets of the Otara Fleamarkets to performing on some of the biggest cruise ships in the world, creating not only art, but a career from his passion.
Known also as “The Sand Man”, his work has featured in national ad campaigns and music videos. He is sought after by many organisations, captivating and mesmerising many audiences both in New Zealand and around the world with his thought provoking live art presentations. He loves using art to help teach, entertain and inspire people.
