We are pleased to offer a variety of prints by Midwest artist Markus Pierson.
Pierson created his iconic brand and painting style, "The Coyote Series" back in 1986 after he heard the Joni Mitchell song, "Coyote." He loved it, played it often and memorized the words. The focus of the song, a guy referred to as "Coyote," is a reckless, footloose Casanova type fellow – Pierson aspired to be the carefree romancer described in those lyrics. Then he did something he'd never done before or since: Markus made a drawing of a song. Since then he has created and sold over 1000 paintings, 200 sculpture & print editions, and created a body of found object sculptures.
"There's no doubt in my mind that my success has more to do with luck than talent, more to do with stubbornness than vision, more to do with ignorance than insight, but the fact remains that I pursued my dream and attained it against staggering odds. I say this now to anyone who will listen: even if I had failed, it would have been worth it. Better to face a brutal truth than to grow old wondering what might have been." Markus Pierson
