Fine Art - Marco Gallotta
paper-cutting techniques, drawing, painting, and printmaking.
“My artistic craft consists mostly of photographic images that I manipulatethrough cutting, overlapping, drawing, and painting.
Through this process, images are transformed into new organic forms that find an existential dimension through a powerful osmosis with nature and its elements.”
Marco Gallotta is an Italian-born, New York City-based artist. He received his associate's degree in fashion illustration and a bachelor’s degree in general illustration from the Fashion Institute of Technology. He grew up in Battipaglia, a town in the Campania region of southwestern Italy, before moving to New York City in 1998. His artistic craft consists mostly of paper-cutting techniques, drawing, painting, and printmaking.
Today, Marco resides with his wife and daughter in New York City, where he finds inspiration in its urbanscape, distinct artistic facets, and diverse population. He currently practices his craft in an intimate studio workshop in West Harlem. His vast expertise in mixed media techniques, including drawing, painting, and printmaking, add to his work a unique combination of artisan craftsmanship and graphic sensibility. Watercolors, inks, and graphite are applied to photographs that are then cut out. Layers of cut-out photographs, paper and other materials are strategicallyoverlapped to create ingenious compositions.
His clients include Chanel, Nike, Vogue, the United Nations, Radio City Music Hall, Academy Award winner Ennio Morricone, actor Will Smith, NBA player Gigi Datome and fashion entrepreneur Renzo Rosso.
