Comments & Critics by Pablo Villar
Born in Buenos Aires City,
his origins come from the union of a grandfather from Cataluña, (Spain), and an
Italian grandmother from Rome.
He was particularly
influenced by the art of Kandinsky, Man-Ray and Miró.
His work focuses on the
interaction of the mind and the artwork.
He started his work when
he was only 10 years old, making ceramic sculptures.
After High school, he
studied at UBA University of Buenos Aires.

of the being at the same time. Marcellux's paintings makes me nervous (in the
positive meaning of the world) because I see a challenge for perception in them
for people like me, who appreciate when we find a renovation of what we know
We all know that art is a
language. The great question I ask myself after the contemplation of these
paintings is: Is it possible the 'cool passion’, the 'moderate impulse'? Can
we control our own internal worlds? Should we let the chaos take us and carry
ourselves through it's sharpen paths? Marcellux seems to have an answer to my
