About Artist & Art Details

Surrealism that forms a link between the subconscious or dream world and the unavoidable structure of human society with its greed and temptation for the soul. Driven by a passion for drawing Marcelo had no formal training and was inspired by the encouragement of his Uncle. From early years his use of watercolours, pastels and coloured pencils took him to Chile where he went on to complete a course in art, at the Catholic University of Santiago. From here his work has evolved with inspiration taken from the likes of Dali, Kahlo and Borda to name a few. His work is described as whimsical, complex, absurd and surreal.
