a Multidisciplinary Artist, Animator and Interactive Designer based in Melbourne, Australia.

As both a Commercial and Exhibiting Artist, Marco has worked with various clients and organisations to create uniquely engaging visual content whilst his illustrative and new media works have been featured around some of Melbourne's iconic creative spaces including ACMI, Melbourne Pavillion, Grand Hyatt and Melbourne Convention Centre.
