ABOUT

PROFILE

Marcos is a free lance scenographer and art director, working on the design and production of sets and tridimensional spaces for theatre, shows, live events, exhibitions, and art installations.

His artistic vision enables him to transform concepts into visualizations, and to create spectacular and meaningful sets, combining the constraints of content, space, time, nature, and budget, with simplicity in an original approach.

His visual poetic skills allow him to give a strong added value on brainstormings, concept designs, design developments, production follow up, and art direction.

He produces conceptual sketches, story boards, drawings, powerful visuals, 3D models, with mixed techniques. Pencils and water colors are as much used as printers, renders, and photoshop.
