Marco DaSilva is a Brazilian-American artist whose symbol-based works explore hybridity through the intersections of painting and craft. His graphic style of making combines painting and collaging of objects, textures and mediums. His works use bright bold colors that investigate ritual and storytelling through a queer lens. He creates his own mythology in the process, providing a richly saturated landscape of his own world to the viewer.
DaSilva has exhibited at Galeria del Barrio and Manny Cantor Center as well as solo exhibition’s at The Bureau of General Services-Queer Division and Abrons Arts Center. He was a NYFA Artist as Entrepreneur Fellow and a Visual Art Fellow for Queer Art Mentorship’s 2017-2018 cycle with mentor Liz Collins. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Hyperallergic and NBC OUT’s “12 queer artists whose work is making us pay attention.”
