Marco Grassi was born in Milan in 1966. He studied at the Liceo Artistico B. Luini and graduated with a degree in architecture, in Milan. For the past 10 years, he has been living and working in Mariano Comense in Italy.

In recent years, he has taken on a distinct artistic language and a figurative style. His portraits, delicate and attractive, are inspired by this complex vision in which he senses. In each of his works, Grassi paints so as to bring out the expressions and emotions of his subjects. Grassi has mastered the application of material and colour; the result is a play on shadow and light, which brings a certain depth to his works.
