Maars | Biography

Three Twenty Gallery is pleased to represent Brother Maars as he continues to push the social conscious and artistic boundaries of life and how it relates to being a modern artist. Using stark colors for boldness, with simple, yet complex imagery, Maars, real name JaMar,  palettes several ideas for the viewer to ponder.

 

Hailing from New York City, Syracuse to be exact, Brother Maars is a multi-disciplined artist. A visual artist with a focus in printmaking, illustration and creative writing. Maars is inspired by his family, crediting his uncles, Amos, Richmond & Truman (ironically spelling ART), for being a beacon into the life of creating. He refers to heritage not just as “everyday people, but extraordinary people.” In his words “some of the stars are just now starting to shine, but our family has been responding creatively to situations that we were expected to fail for years. That’s the real art”.

Now 36, Maars is sharpening his collection of skills to prepare him for a future in industrial design, already expanding his talents through his family’s construction business. His brand, A.C.M.F. [Arts and Crafts Mon Frere], is a contemporary stock of his ideas, emotions, and tangible works. Brother Maars uses vibrant colors and playful characters in his illustrations to offset the harsh realities of concepts like love, fear, death, politics, culture and unpopular opinions. He doesn’t believe that artists need to be categorized by their sex, race or views (“we’re all telling a story, that should tell you enough eventually. We don’t need more name tags and labels in a world full of name tags and labels”). Maars uses nostalgic sportswear and black culture in an “if you know you know” type of way, to convey his side of the story.

 

Brother Maars’ residency at Three Twenty Gallery will take place in the Spring of 2021. During what is also known as “Santa Fe Trail Day” in Las Animas, Colorado. We hope to enlighten the audience to not only who Brother Maars is but the message he’s telling so beautifully in each one of his works. Each painting is simply complex and full of wonderment. One that requires the viewer to digest completely before casting judgement. They make you think. And he is exactly what the world needs – a new planet.

Statement from the Artist

“Pleasure and pain live in the same neighborhood. I imagine that not everyone who is oppressed wants to roll over and die under that oppression. It’s hard to believe with centuries of social engineering and brainwashing by religion, but I know somebody had to be willing to die about their respect.”
