About the artist

31 year old Marcos Roberto is from Bauru – Sao Paulo State and studied Visual Arts at FPA in Sao Paulo City.

He has been using discarded materials as “blank canvas” for his oeuvres. His works reflect on the contradictions, the social inequalities and give visibility to the marginalised peoples from the Brazilian society.

He utilises metal, cardboard, wood and concrete on his works as a way of upcycling and giving value to materials that would be otherwise binned.

 The political and social critique that is present in his works are not only about painting the day-to-day lives of those excluded individuals, but also on recycling those objects used on his paintings, provoking and instigating reflection from the observers.
