Born in 1973 - Germany


biography under completion

Marco  was born in Munich in 1973. After school he went to live in Ireland and Britain.
He studied painting in Cardiff and Falmouth (GB). In 1999 he met his future wife Eva Rønnevig at an exhibition on Oslo, this was the beginning of their collaboration on many exciting projects. In 2000 he was selected for the the UNESCO-Aschberg bursary for a residency at the Paa Ya Paa Art Centre in Nairobi (Kenya). The resulting work was exhibited at the UN Headquarters in Gigiri. He then organised BIKE ART AFRIKA with Eva, in which they and 3 local artists cycled from Nairobi to Dar-Es-Salaam (Tanzania). They worked together with the National Museum, and the Nyumba Ya Sanaa (House of Art).

After their return they opened Galerie Lebenskunst (near Munich) together with his brother Roland. In 2002 Eva and Marco were walking with a mule in the Andes (in Ecuador) for a few months. They then spent some years living on a houseboat in the South-West of Britain, in Cornwall. There Marco  returned to painting on canvas, after years of exploring metal sculpture, installations, and ornamental photography.

The couple are presently based in the South of France, in the hills of the wild Corbieres. In July 2008 they opened Atelier ArtBonBon in their house (near Perpignan). Marco’s paintings are inspired by his extensive travels, and his passion for different languages, cultures and ways of living.
