- Where Pop stands for Glamour -
Marco Grassi was born in Milan in 1966. He studied at the Liceo Artistico B. Luini in Canuto and graduated with a degree in architecture in Milan. Today he lives and works in Mariano Comense.
Regarding the technique, a relevant novelty can be observed. Grassi renounces an element which up until now was a decisive part of the architecture of every part of his work.
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 out look of the world.
The Subject and the scene...
Grassi’s subjects are masked in some way, actors and figures, caught in the intense foreground, they tell of events starting from those encrypted by their creator, marked with their expressions, moments which can be traced back to the situations experienced by each viewer. Subject and viewer meet and play the game of their glances.
