  Marcus J. Howell is an artist from the Midwest, and is currently an Associate Professor and Area Head of Printmaking at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri. The content of Howell’s work centers around the inherent absurdity of the political and social constructs that run people’s lives, and the great cost those structures exact on the individual and his or her environment. Marcus received his B.F.A. in Design, with an emphasis in image production, from Southwest Missouri State and his M.F.A. in Printmaking from the University of Illinois UrbanaChampaign.

Marcus has had work featured in Juxtapoz Magazine. His work has also been included in over 70 National and International juried exhibitions.

The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri chose Marcus to jury this particular exhibit because of the raw, uncensored nature of his work and its ability to inflict a feeling of discomfort in the viewer.
