He is the founder of Marcel Katz Art, an art gallery & dealership; The Art Plug, an art & creative agency; and The Art Plug Power House, an independent art fair & experimental event platform for international artists.
Born and raised in Miami, Katz began his work in the nightlife scene, leading him to creative programming & promotions. Collaborations with local artists and collecting their work led him to his current creative path. Over the course of 6 years, Katz has laid the foundation for his art endeavors and has access to works from hundreds of artists including Picasso, Warhol, Haring, Basquiat, Murakami, and an elite roster of contemporary artists. At the age of 30, Katz became the youngest Authorized Salvador Dali dealer.
Katz is known and sought out for his eclectic taste, creative vision, and ability to connect the dots. He has curated campaigns with brands from various industries including Lyft, Foot Locker, Atlantic Records, Empire Distribution, Universal Music Group/Island Records, Stella Artois, Stoli, and Chotto Matte. According to Forbes, Katz is “disrupting the US art scene” one project, client, market at a time. On why he got into art, Katz says: "Art lets me put myself in positions where I am constantly challenged. Art is timeless, it's forever. I can leave my cultural footprint in the world with my art and vision. I found that art is limitless and lets me explore concepts that push boundaries and bend rules."
As Whitehot Magazine put it, "He’s a force to be reckoned with, challenging traditional power structures, and making major waves doing it.” Katz is "the contemporary artist’s greatest ally."
