About

Fred Marchman was a Mobile and Southern original. Everyone who knew him said he was born an artist – obsessed, determined, prolific and creative.

He called himself a Southern Pop artist and said he was influenced by ancient art, modern painting and sculpture, folk art, esoteric writings, visionary and spiritual themes. He was a painter, printmaker, sculptor, and illustrator who reveled in using paint, wood, canvas, ink, metal, charcoal, crayon, and even concrete, to make his art.
