Marco Grassi

For the past ten years, Milan born, Italian native, Marco Grassi has been developing his highly nuanced, unique figurative style of painting into a groundbreaking body of work. He depicts the female figure in a series of large scale mixed media paintings which incorporate metal leaf, oil paint and lacquer, as well as producing a collection of small watercolor studies.

Grassi’s visual language has remained constant despite formal constraints and diversity of medium, employing techniques of the painter’s stroke in outstanding originality of color, gesture and precision. Characterized by a singular vision yet resonant, complex sensitivity from figure to figure, Grassi’s subjects are delicate and sensual, taken in an energetic and resolute gaze that ultimately presents new discourse to the female experience.
