Marco Pettinari , was born in Rome in November 1972. Curious mind with a questioning attitude, he approached various ways of expression. His academic career as his art works reflect his eclectic personality in continuous search. Since very young he showed big interest in art subjects, but provided with a highly versatile character he approached more firmly the world of art only after obtaining a Diploma in Modern Languages, a Degree (BSc) in Computer Science Engineering and then a Diploma (BSc) in Figurative Art at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome. His multiple interests led him to find different ways to expresses his art such as painting, sculpting, engraving, photography, furnishing design, multimedia installations, experimenting with different kind of materials, synthetics or organics or even simple recycled materials on different kind of mediums. In all these disciplines, his approach is to seize control of the main techniques and explore the different possibilities to achieve an aesthetic result which is compatible with his concept of a work of art.
