Amaro, Marlon
Born 1987 in Niterói, Brazil.
Lives and works Niterói Brazil.
Currently studying Painting at the Escola de Belas Artes (UFRJ| EBA) with complementary training at the Escola de Artes Visuais d Parque Lage (EAV), Rio de Janeiro, painting is Marlon Amaro’s primary medium. In his research, the artist focuses on bringing to light, through personal experiences and daily iconographic research, social patterns that perpetuate structural racism. With a strong influence of urban aesthetics, he builds scenes that function as visual traps when playing with the contradiction of his characters and the strong chromatic appeal in relation to the socio-political content brought by the artist. Earlier this year the artist had a solo exhibition, entitled SÍSIFO at HOA Galeria, São Paulo.
