Marcus Suarez is a legendary artist known for his eclectic paintings and murals. In the 90s, his unique style catapulted him into the spotlight, allowing him to work for some of the biggest stars like Prince, Pamela Anderson, and Steven Spielberg. He is generously releasing a series of 14 portrait paintings, as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), with a portion of the proceeds going to the National Kidney Foundation (NKF).
