Marcus Kreiss (Hamburg) studied filmmaking in Rome (Cinecitta) and Fine Arts in Aix-en-Provence before creating art for urban spaces, working on large scale oil-paintings and VJing at international festivals.

Looking for a third way to produce and distribute images between filmmaking and painting, Marcus Kreiss invented a new way to distribute video art: TV. In 2006 he began to build a television channel, starting on local cable TV networks in Germany under the name of SOUVENIRS FROM EARTH. The channel, that "transforms flat screens into works of art" quickly established itself in France where it is today one of the first seven freely available high definition channels.

In his personal video works, he explores the physical possibilities of the bi dimensional space of the flat screen with hypnotic images, often of iconic quality, often working with professional actors or celebrities. Extreme slow motion and natural color fields are frequently used.

Marcus' work is represented in major art collections including those of Deutsche Bank, Fnac (France's government collection), and the Yvon Lambert Collection in Avignon.
