Graduating in architecture at FAU USP, Marcelo Cipis began his activities as an editorial illustrator in 1977 the artist spent some time in Europe where he discovered new ways of seeing paintings which then influenced him on his own style and work. After visiting several museums he began to see painting as he had never done before. He falls in love with the lines, brush strokes, and the uniqueness that separate painting from graphics and from the reproductions contained in books and magazines. He decides that he wants to work as a visual artist, in the broadest sense of the word.
