Marco Rea

Marco Rea was born in November 1975 in Rome, where he is now living and working.
Currently he is one of the most representative artist of Italian Lowbrow\New Contemporary Art.
His art pieces are made with spray cans and they are the result of the reinterpretation of already existing images; billboards are careful altered until they only just resemble their original form, showing like that of a secret soul, dark and melancholic.
Marco Rea’s art express an emotional personality, in constant excitement, always aiming to seek its perfection.
Faces are loosing the shape of reality and they materialize into the void. Just like under hypnosis, they will catch your attention and will transmit a vague sense of anxiety.
His artistic production introduces a new original and unmistakable style. It’s a unique piece in the contemporary Italian art.

Marco is mentioned on Wikipedia (USA) together with the worldwide famous Lowbrow artists, there are also countless articles and interviews about him on cult magazines such as Juxtapoz (USA), Hi-Fructose (USA), Urban graffiti (USA), Fecal Face (USA), Inside Art (It.), Mousetouch (Serbia), Cuadrivio (Messico) Black Light (Rep. Ceca), Fluster Magazine (It.), Velvet Italia, GQ Italia, Ziguline (It.), PlayGround Mag (Spagna) and so on.
His art work has been exhibited in many European and american galleries together with the most importan artists of the Street and Pop Surrealist art.
