Rue Mouffetard is a street in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, France. Situated in the fifth arrondissement of Paris, Rue Mouffetard is one of Paris's oldest and liveliest neighbourhoods. These days the area has many restaurants, shops, and cafés, and a regular open market. It is centered on the Place de la Contrescarpe, at the junction of the rue Mouffetard and the rue de Lacepede. Its southern terminus is at the Square Saint-Médard where there is a permanent open-air market. It is closed to normal motor traffic much of the week, and is predominantly a pedestrian avenue.

Marko Stupar was born in 1936 in Yugoslavia.  He chose France as his permanent home in 1964 after completing his studies at the Beaux-Arts of Belgrade. Today we find that the art of Marko Stupar is totally integrated into the School of Paris. Although his work continues to be very personal, the graphic nature of his Slavic background is now uniquely combined with the subtlety found in Pierre Bonnard.?

Stupar has participated in juried exhibitions since 1966 when he won the Silver Medal at the Center of Diffusion of the Cote-d'Azur. He regularly participates in the Salon d'Automne*, the Salon National des Beaux-Arts, the Salon des Artistes Français* and the Salon Comparaison. 


Among his other honors, Stupar has won both the Silver and Gold medals of the Salon des Artistes Français.? One-man exhibitions of Stupar's work have been held in cities all over the world including Paris, Geneva, Lyon, Osaka, Dusseldorf, Strasbourg, Zagreb, Annecy, Havre, New York, Philadelphia, Dallas, and Houston.
