An Italian painter with the finest brush stroke the collection has ever seen, Marco paints down to the pores on a persons face, and only under a microscope have we been able to see his brushstroke.

Line quality and delicacy in the colours used are fundamental to his paintings. Marco is particularly interested by changes of the body and a humans personality, which is why Marco’s paintings often portray people undergoing a metamorphosis.

Speaking on the ideal of female beauty he says – “… not beauty for its own sake, but to be able to stop a moment, a situation that belongs to the subject that you want to portray, everyone has their own It is essential to find a balance and harmony on canvas, I think this makes the figure attractive.”
