"Over the last ten years I have conducted over one hundred collaborative mural projects.

My artistic approach for these projects emphasizes the development of creativity through painting, the dynamics of working as a team, experimenting with colour, drawing and composition in an activity that values cooperation, collaboration and compromise.

The theme of this exhibition suggests the presence of hidden elements in a multidimensional space, emphasizing the importance of drawing as a means of expression.

I am a painter. The characteristics of my painting are an extensive use of colour combined with the portrayal of human emotions and behaviour in symbolic situations."

Marcio Melo
