I Will Wait Here Forever as Long as It Takes is Stefan Marx' first major book. It contents a selection from the personal drawing diaries, on which Stefan worked over the last two years, combining some of the finest paper paintings and drawings with book drawings and written notes. The intimacy of the subject matter portrayed in the book is also reflected in the title, chosen for its moody romantic inner meaning, which sums up Stefan working style “going through life writing and drawing down the lowlights.”
Egyptian loneliness, witty sentences, romantic landscapes and funny
happy characters fill the journey into Stefan Marx creative mind and
genius, taking us through new fields and directions but still retaining
all the artist's powerful imagery.
Artist and designer Stefan Marx (born 1979 in Schwalmstadt, lives and works in Berlin) is an actor of the skateboard scene, whose drawings usually adorn productions of his label "The Lousy Livincompany". He also collaborated with Playhouse Records, as well as with famous skateboard brands.
An expression of everyday's experience with a critical distance, his black and white drawings, overpainted flyers and enigmatic slogans are anchored in street culture but address our cultural awareness.
During the past years, Marx' art travelled around Europe in several occasions and galleries (like "“The Side Effects of Urethane"), as well as being reproduced in various magazines and publications like The Art of Rebellion and Street Logos.
