Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba was born in 1976 in Massalombarda, Italy. He attended the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts. Immediatley after graduation, 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. His 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 favorite 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' why he's always looking for pure concepts and summary.
"I never give up irony; irony is a serious matter. If a good idea is even fun, I cannot resist to realize it" - Marcantonio.
