I have been such a HUGE fan of Marco's work for awhile now - his work grips me everytime! So strangely beautiful and exquisitely composed, with these unnatural elements that merge together effortlessly.
Marco is influenced alot by 'Italian folklore....mystical women who seduce, bewitch, curse and cure.'
Heavily metaphorical, each piece tells a secret story of life, knowledge, power, beauty, religion, death - the eyes often removed or hidden, to avoid distraction from the ‘moment when a woman takes control of all, in harmony with nature’.

Another master of the humble coloured pencil, his skill in capturing and creating light/dark space and a spectrum of unqiue colours is astounding and often requires a second look to appreciate the artistry that has been put into each peice.
Check out his tumblr or facebook for his current updates and progress shots, which he always has plenty of!
