Marco Tamburro was born in Perugia in 1974.
Graduated in Architecture and Furniture at the Art Institute of his city, in 1994 he moved to Milan and enrolled in the Scenography Course of the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. Get in touch with the Milanese artistic environment, start collaborating with photographers and set designers as an assistant. Not a random choice, since Marco Tamburro has already gained a deep interest in the large theatrical spaces, in which he imagines and gives shape to pictorial panels with imposing dimensions, he uses a bridle free from his visionary fantasy.
His great expressive power fascinates him, which plays a fundamental role in the attempt to translate visual images into a communicative medium.
The Roman cultural environment also pushes him to narrate everyday life in visionary ways: an unlived life, in which man lets himself be dragged into the vortex of his incessant and frenetic rhythms, losing sight of the time that passes too quickly, without being able to grasp the little things that surround him. All this explains the marginal role of the human figure in his painting: it is a simple presence, a shadow, a spectrum consumed by time, a time that chases incessantly, climbing to the top of dizzying and monumental skyscrapers. Man inevitably remains crushed and alienated from this magma which is today’s metropolis, a symbol of the power of hostile and aggressive power that dominates it.
