Culture and the Arts, Inspirational

Marcus Winter (AKA The Sandman) blurs the lines between conventional painting, street art and theatrical performance… his creations are powerful, mesmerising and if you turn away for a second…. You might just miss something!
A master of story-telling, through making images with sand, he has been wowing audiences by illustrating conference themes or messages through his art.
After consultation with clients about their themes or objectives Marcus creates live artworks by placing sand on a lightbox which he then manipulates to create images that morph into amazing stories perfectly tailored to your event or conference.
Marcus is also a master of ‘ink’ and can draw live on stage.
Ideal for Corporate events, conference, product launch, gala dinner, awards night.

Marcus Winter was a finalist in an arts category in the "Nga Toa Whakaihuwaka", Maori of the Year Awards 2013.

I first saw Marcus on the TV show ‘Marae Investigates' and thought what a talent - it would be great to have him end our first day of conference. His brief was to start with the sponsors and our logo, include some key nature icons of New Zealand and possibly finishing with 100% Pure New Zealand. During the afternoon the speakers and delegates confirmed that we believe in the 100% Pure New Zealand marketing campaign with 100% Sure being mooted. Marcus assimilated what he had heard and observed and finished with great panache and humour. We were mesmerised throughout the performance and we couldn't have finished a better way with many delegates saying it was the best artistic live performance they had ever seen.
