Artist and composer, Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles in 1960 to Estonian immigrants. He grew up in Whittier, California, and studied drawing and painting at the California State University in Fullerton. In 1982 he went to New York, and from 1984 he became a leading figure on the East Village art scene. During this period, with the aim to provoke, he published interviews with himself discussing the utilitarianism of contemporary art. Since 1987 his works have been displayed in galleries in New York, the United States, Germany, and Australia. In 1988 he founded Kostabi World in New York, a studio where he has many assistants. Since 1996 he has been dividing his time between New York and Rome. As a result, the presence of his works in Italian galleries has greatly increased. He also produces a cable TV show, “Title This”, where well-known art critics and celebrities compete to give a title to his paintings and receive a reward. He wrote and gave advice to artists on a column, “Ask Mark Kostabi”, on Kostabi also made the album cover of some American bands and artists, Guns ‘N’ Roses to name one, the design of some industrial products, from the Swatch watch to computer accessories, up to the pink jersey of the Giro d’Italia. He also collaborated with artists such as Cucchi, Arman, and Baj among others. He has held concerts both as a soloist and with other musicians, and his compositions are performed not only by other artists but also by symphony orchestras. Retrospective exhibitions of Kostabi’s works were held at the Mitsukoshi Museum in Tokyo in 1992 and at the Art Museum in Tallinn, Estonia, in 1998. In 1983 Kostabi’s works are permanently on display at the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum in New York, at the National Gallery in Washington, the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome, and the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands. He also created a mural at Palazzo dei Priori, Arezzo, a large bronze sculpture in the main square of San Benedetto del Tronto, and a bronze statue of Pope John XXIII in Velletri. Interviews and articles have appeared in many national and foreign magazines and newspapers, CNN, Playboy, Forbes, New York Magazine, Corriere della Sera, Domus, The New York Times, Arte, Flash Art, The Sunday Telegraph, and others, while among the books published on his production we can mention Sadness because the video rental store was closed, The early years, conversation with Kostabi, The rhythm of inspiration, Mark Kostabi and the East Village scene 1983-1987, Mark Kostabi in the 21st century.
