Marco Donnarumma

About the Artist

Marco was born in Naples in 1967. After completing his law studies, he decided to follow his true passion and devote his life to art. Marco educated himself with the aid of workshops studying for long periods in the art and techniques of the old masters.

Marco spent much of his free time travelling and gathering inspiration globally from different traditions. The experiences he had whilst travelling gave new life to his creations. One such experience happened in the three years he lived in Japan. Here he met Sensai Hideo Torazawa, who shared with him the secret art and technique of the Japanese ceramic traditions.

Marco’s sculptures embody the beauty of the greek myths and the pursuit of reaching beyond human limitation. His work predominantly focuses on the human form and of the natural expressions and facial lines that portray a sense of the strength of soul of the subjects.

Marco’s creative outlets reach beyond the realms of sculpture with him creating music in his spare time. Marco has created many works throughout his career with a major work, ‘San Gerolamo’ being installed at the San Gerolamo Church in Naples.
