Markus was born in 1953 in Budapest, Hungary. His mother is Szollos Erzsebet. His childhood in Hungary, where he frequented museums, is an influence on his work. He is also influenced by avant-garde art and abstraction. He became increasingly frustrated with teachers and the confines of communism in his native Hungary. Markus began his career as a sculptor. At the age of fourteen, he and his work were featured on international public television.
