Marco Santos is a self-taught Portuguese-Spanish artist. Since a very young age he drew about his surroundings and favourite fictional characters. Lover of cinema and comics, especially marked by the cultural movements of the ‘80/’90, he always had in drawing a way to visualize what called his attention especially, it was always a way of communicating and being a channel of expression of what his imagination pointed to.
My work (oil and acrylic) is quite diversified, from themes about everyday realities, what is part of our day to day, to social criticism, reflecting some of the injustices that surround us. My most recent paintings are about pop culture, a mixture of reality and fiction, using characters from different fields for that.
