Marinko Jareb is a multidisciplinary artist, DJ and father of two from the Niagara Region. He has shown his work and performed internationally and his art belongs in public and private collections around the globe. While signed to Mono Records of Helsinki, Finland, his music took him on a whirlwind tour of underground nightclubs and raves all over Europe, brushing elbows with contemporary artists along the way. As a member of The Vinyl Interventions Trio (with Esther Bourdage of Montreal and Carrie Gates of Saskatoon), Marinko experimented and pushed the boundaries of DJ culture. Marinko’s “low tech gets high” style has been described as “electric folk art” and as an “intersection of street culture, the dance floor and the gallery walls”. Marinko’s work has been featured in Musicworks Magazine, on the cover of FUSE Magazine, in the book Toronto Graffiti and in many group and solo exhibits in Canada and abroad.
Currently, Marinko is the curator of ECHO, a series of outdoor music events at Rodman Hall Art Centre and he works on art every day of his life.
