Marco Grassi was born in Milan in 1966. He studied at the liceo artistico B. Luini in Cantu and graduated in architecture in Milan. His works may be found in USA, Finland, Switzerland and Italian galleries and museums. Marco had numerous solo exhibitions in USA, Australia, France, UK and in many Italian cities.
Marco Grassi has spent the last decade creating works with an eye to remaining faithful to his figurative style, and avoiding the whims of fashion and trend. His artistic language and the subjects he chooses highlight his unchanging vision and complex sensitivity, though his representations of the fashionable female figure, use of particular colour combinations and lacquering, and series featuring subjects with minimal variation have led him to be inaccurately labelled as a Pop artist.
Though Grassi chooses subjects who are delicate and attractive, these female figures are also energetic and resolute. Their representation in bright and fashionable colours echoes the Pop Art genre, but the subjects themselves are outside the confines of that artistic category.
