Marco Grassi Grama

Grama (Milan, 1966) is an internationally celebrated painter. He has taken part in some of the most important international fairs such as Art Miami, Scope Art Fair, and the Moscow Art Fair. Perhaps most significantly, his institutional acknowledgment reached its zenith when he was selected to open the Italian pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2011.

Throughout his career’s long trajectory, he has consolidated a personal style insisting on the identity of the female figure in the context of the specific moment in which they are painted. Grama's intense female portraits captivate the viewer by establishing a silent dialogue between the subject and the spectator.

The use of lacquering, the brightness of his colours and the adoption of the female body as a leitmotif have wrongly labelled him in the reductive genre of “Pop”.
