Marcantonio

Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba was born in 1976 in Massalombarda, Italy. He attended the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts.
Just graduated he begins to work in the theater scene and collaborating with architects on projects. Soon he begins to create unique pieces of design in parallel with a production of art, but step by step the two careers are beginning to become contaminated. So its design is enriched with artistic concepts. For over 10 years he worked for private or local public realizes. Connections between Man and Nature are his favourite theme; interpreting both dynamics and beauties of nature; showing the Man’s attitude affecting the original. He loves thinking about his work as a direct continuation of what he used to do when he was a child, playing with everything he finds, and create what his mind imagined. Actually, looking for the aesthetic component and concept, takes ideas from the same sources he created while playing, daydreaming with everything normally surrounds him.  He learned from Art how an idea could be elegant, that’s why he’s always looking for pure concepts and summary.

“I think the greater inspiration is coming from the nature, both from its shapes and its attitude. Nothing is needless in nature, everything is essential, functional. I feel a strong appeal from the nature, a sense of belonging, I can see great similarities in natural world, inside it and compared with our world. The city expansion and its streets reminds some microorganisms’s growth, a tree reminds our veins. So more than looking for new shapes, I aim at looking for new concepts”.
