about ARTIST

Marcos's inspirations

Marcos’s work focuses on the collage; he loves taking images away from their original contexts and inter-splicing them another meaning. For hime, time past and time future are united in a perpetual possibility of change and creation. 

What does he create now

He always tries to play with the puns and irony. To achieve this, he uses old images as they reinforce the contrast which is inserted into the collage-based form of expression.

"Starting with various stimuli and materials is more inspiring to me than having a blank canvass in front of me. Exploring the endless possibilities with these existing elements is the most rewarding part of the artistic endeavour."

Be surreal

His collages and paintings are formed by images that have no apparent connection and their meaning becomes clear in their combination. It is up to you to interpret them!

Artist's inspirations

Dada images

Marcos’s work is not about translating a world that already exists, but about an entrance into a different universe. A timeless, tactile world of sensation and overlapping memory.
