About the Work
About the Artist
About the Work
A man of many talents, Mark Kostabi is best known for his paintings of faceless mannequin-like figures. He always depicts the subjects as faceless; He believes this ambiguous quality bestows a universal language into his work that is free of racial limitations and gives an unbiased reflection of society’s fear of individuality. 

In “The Party Starts Now” we see a couple holding a baby. Their posture is incredulous, and the title fully suggests that their party, or life, has just become more interesting due to their new addition. “The Party Starts Now” is a 42 x 29.25 – inch mixed media on paper.
About the Artist

Artist and composer Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles, in 1960 to an Estonian immigrant family. He studied traditional mediums, such as drawing and painting, at California State University in Fullerton. In 1982, he moved to New York City and by 1984 became a leading figure of the East Village art scene, which included artists such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Basquiat, and others. Throughout his art career, he has cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews. In 1988, he founded Kostabi World – a large New York studio known for openly employing numerous painting assistants and ‘idea people’ to produce artwork. Today, Mark Kostabi’s work is displayed in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) the Guggenheim Musem, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Groninger Museum in Holland. The Mitsukoshi Museum in Tokyo has held a 100 painting retrospective of his work, and he has had over 500 gallery exhibitions worldwide. Kostabi has appeared on every major network talk show since the 1980s, including Oprah. He has also worked on album covers for musical icons the Guns N’Roses and Ramones.
