Marcelo Solá


 

Marcelo Solá was born in Goiânia, Brazil in 1971.

His work is oriented to the new frontier of drawing, a drawing-painting, sometimes drawing-installation, or with participation of objects, always as an enlarged, almost obsessive activity. That has been gaining characteristics out of the genre. His work has gained the attention of the most intellectual critic. Marcelo Solá has works in public collections such as, MAM – SP; MAR – RJ; Museum of Art of Recife, Brazil.
