Marcantonio, born ’76. He attended the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts. As soon as he graduated, he began working as a theatrical set designer and collaborating with various architects. Soon he started to create unique design pieces while working on an Artistic production. Step by step the two careers began to contaminate each other and his design gets enriched with artistic concepts.
Since 2001 he has been creating sculptures, art objects and design projects. The connections between Man and Nature are his favorite topic, with his original interpretation of Nature’s dynamics. Beauties showing Man’s attitude to alter the original. He learned from Art how an idea can be elegant, which is why he is always looking for pure and synthetic concepts.
“I never give up on irony, irony is a serious thing. If a good idea is also funny, I can’t resist realizing it”
Marcantonio loves the idea that his job is a continuation of what he used to do when he was a child: to play around with anything he found and to create what his mind imagined. Nowadays, seeking the aesthetic component and the concept, he gets his ideas from the same sources he created when playing as a child, daydreaming with what is usually around him every day.
