LOGO Marcos Roberto - Um so corpo2.png

Marcos Roberto moved to São Paulo at the age of 23 to study Visual Arts at the Faculdade Paulista de Artes. Due to socioeconomic issues, he had to return to the countryside and work as a laborer in a traffic sign factory - which would become one of his main supports for painting.

 

Today he dedicates himself exclusively to his production in contemporary art, appropriating the materials he used as a worker, such as screws and discarded traffic signs. With a plural production, Marcos uses these signs and portrays scenes of miserable daily life in the country, aiming to draw people's attention to social inequality, of which he was also a part at some point.
