The Underground Art of Marco Almera


Marco Almera began his artistic careeMarco Almera's Praying Handsr in the Southern California Surf/ Skate/ Punk Rock culture of the early eighties. As a teenager, Almera was inspired by the do-it-yourself style of this culture, and created his own t-shirts and stylized graphics. Almera’s underground art style gravitated to surfing and rock music posters, and these themes have always been present in Almera’s imagery. An avid art student, his interests extended into the printing process as well. Almera’s interest in screen-printing eventually led to taking up airbrushing, and soon he began painting cars and t-shirts for family, friends and customers.

The Native American-styled airbrushed shirts Almera painted became recognized at Indian Pow-Wows and Music Festivals around the country. The burgeoning recognition of Marco Almera’s imagery led to t-shirt designs licensed by rock bands in 1993.  As a natural extension of that work, he was painting album covers by 1996.

Marco Almera has spent the better part of the past decade working extensively in the surfMarco Almera's Voo Doo Glow Skulls and music industries, creating t-shirts, album covers, rock music posters and commissioned paintings. Almera’s serigraphs are featured in music stores, and can be found in poster galleries throughout the world. Most recently, he has enjoyed success with his serigraphs in Japan and Germany.

Marco Almera has created album covers and music posters for the following bands:


Reverend Horton Heat

Voodoo Glow Skulls



Ghastly Ones



Blazing Haleys

Still Dreadful

Dropkick Murphys


Supersuckers/Los Infernos

Marco Almera and his artwork entered the gallery scene in 1999, when two of his canvases were shown at the Huntington Beach Art Center. Not long after, Almera’s "Surfer's Paradise," a canvas he’d painted while on a surf trip to Costa Rica, was shown in the Tiki Art Group Show, also at the Huntington Beach Art Center. In October of 1999, Almera’s work was included in the San Francisco Rock Poster Revival.

By the end of 1999, Almera finished "Tiki Dream," a black velvet painting that was included in the Leeteg Tribute-Art Show, curated by Copro/ Nason Fine Arts. The painting is now in the collection of the underground artist extraordinaire known as The Pizz. To round out this most prolific year for Almera, 1999 saw the production of nine new serigraphs to add to his repertoire.
