Marco Stefanucci lives and works in Rome, where he was born in 1970. He acquired a high school diploma in Graphics and later obtained a degree in Art History from the University La Sapienza in Rome.
For several years he worked as a graphic designer in the publishing and television fields, in fact, he has created the graphic layouts for some of the most important tv productions for Rai, Mediaset, La7 and Sky. Although he has always been active in the pictorial field, his shy and reserved personality have always led him away from the spotlight and towards the study of techniques and the expanding of his historiographical research in isolation. These characteristics bind together the essential elements of his painting, which evolves continuously and nourishes itself with his numerous past professional experiences. His work as a graphic designer was later enriched by his intense experience as an art photographer. The use of the darkroom, of acids and of dye toning are elements that characterize his paintings, in particular during the first years of the millennium when his works begin to be contaminated by these mediums. Moved by the urge to expand his study of art history and not that of the techniques, Stefanucci voluntarily begins his studies at the University at an older age. It is at this time that one of the most important transitions in his art takes place. The constant references to the past become the pillars of his paintings. The citations and the allusive signs to various historical periods are used by the artist as fetish; these are works of art that have been buried in time and should be studied and analyzed. The artistic work slowly becomes an act of profound, trying and uncontrollable expulsion. It is in the extreme solitude of those long workdays that the artist captures the deepest sense of life and of the elements that surround him. At times he is able to find answers, but other times, these answers become nightmares.
