Marco Britti was born in Rome (Italy) and, after having lived in London for almost ten years, migrated to Australia.
Marco has been drawing and painting, mainly with oil pastels, oil and acrylic paints, pencils, ink and charcoal from a very young age.
He has exhibited in a dozen group shows around Sydney and 3 solo shows. He has been a finalist in the North Sydney Art Prize (1995) and the Warringah Art Prize (2013). His work has also featured in the Oxford Art Prize, the Pyrmont Art Prize and the Sydney Art show.
“I mostly portray images of people in their moments of simplicity, such as the ‘Piano Bar’ which was painted from the perspective of an onlooker watching from the balcony, but I also draw and paint still-lifes and abstracts. Through colours, light, or simply a few black lines, I long for harmony and balance.” Marco Britti describes his “Round Bar” series as “four strangers at a bar, hoping for a chance meeting. The exact storyline is for the viewer’s imagination, but I aim for a mysterious mood, using strong contrasting colours, light and thick black outlines.”
