–Marko Brandon

Marko Brandon is a Greek/American Atlanta-based artist. Born in 1970 in Seattle, Brandon grew up in Athens, Greece. As a child he had aspirations to become an architect based on his love of Greek architecture and classic antiquities. As a teenager he was a photographer at heart with a penchant for all things mechanical. Brandon moved back to Seattle at age 17.

From then until now he has been collecting a wide variety of art, from Byzantine icons to European master paintings. He also traveled to Italy, Spain, England, and France to research several baroque paintings in his personal collection, findings that triggered his interest in the science behind the images in his collection.
Over the last decade of experimenting with x-ray techniques, Brandon has developed his own expression of modern art bringing the old to a contemporary view. Just as an x-ray reveals the archeology of the body, an x-radiograph uncovers the archeology of a baroque painting.  Brandon has composed x-radiographs to create unique, seemingly three-dimensional pieces that stand at the intersection of art and science.
