Markus Mizne was born in Kiev, in 1908, to a family with artistic and musical and leaning. In the early 1920s, his family escaped the pogroms to Warsaw, and sent Markus to boarding school in Germany, where he became acquainted with modern art during visits to workshops and lectures at the Bauhaus; he began painting aged 15.
My relationship with my father could not be better, as he used to take me to meet with painters he was befriended with, in their studios, where my father’s artwork could be seen hanging in their studio’s wall. Furthermore, these painters would are visit our home occasionally, when long art discussions would be held. In addition, I used to accompany my father to art exhibitions, and openings in addition of visiting museums every Sunday, which became a normal practice in our lives.

The paintings of painter Markus Mizne are calligraphic, a kind of automatic writing in which the planar surface invites the touch of the artist’s hand, activated by an internal force of a private, intimate memory. These sketches, seemingly vague and indecipherable, seemingly rustles devoid of end and purpose – are charged with the tension created between the sublime and the trivial.
