Music producer Parov Stelar (born November 27, 1974 as Marcus Füreder) is one of the major players in the international music business and is celebrated worldwide as a pioneer of electro swing. But only few are aware the Upper Austrian also studied painting and graphics at the Art University Linz and in Berlin.
From July 1, 2021 on Parov Stelar is delivering an insight into his work as a visual artist for the first time in his hometown Linz. The Francisco Carolinum is presenting some 25 large-format paintings such as “HELLO Mom”–a tribute to his mother Margit Füreder, an artist as well– “I'll be OK soon” and “Toxic Lover” in which he absorbes autobiographical events and fears and brings them to art. As in his music, texts are also essential carriers of information in his pictorial works.
