Marco Grassi is an Italian painter best known for his motley colored yet recognizable depictions of beautiful women. Situated within the context of Pop Art, Grassi produces a more personal expression through the baroque textures and hues that define his work.
Born in 1966 in Milan, Italy, Grassi has been the subject of exhibitions at the Aspen Art Gallery in Colorado. He currently lives and works in Como, Italy.
Marco Grassi presents a non-didactic portal for us to participate in his creations. Dedicated to figurative painting, he has no desire to follow trends: he is too busy creating his own path to sublimity.
His paintings are framed in series – though not in accordance to the canonical sense of this term – which feel the specificity of the moment in which they are painted. They speak quietly of Grassi’s mood, his time, story, and outlook of the world.
