In December 2010 I packed my life into two suitcases and moved from Munich to Madrid. But with beginning of the economic crisis in the summer of 2011 I had to leave this vibrant and exciting city. With Duesseldorf I quickly found a new beautiful home for myself and my art. As an expression of my deep attachment to the Spanish capital I decided to change my name officially at the civil center in Düsseldorf. Since that day I live my life under the pseudonym MARCO MADRIDO.
Neither I studied at a famous art school nor I adore a certain painter. Since 1978 I walk with open eyes through my life and whenever I got inspired I created a new painting. As an absolute
self-taught artist my pieces of art are never related to any kind of trends in the art industry. I never compare myself with other artists and their work. Beyond this I do not even enjoy running
through art galleries. Thus I describe my work as NEW PIECES OF ART. Since 1996 I brought 29 NEW PIECE OF ART to life and any single piece is telling a very personal story. These stories may
encourage people or sometimes even provoke them. But anykind of reaction is more than welcome. That's why I do art. However in my often supremely colorful paintings the art form of collage and
décollage emerges with the art of acrylic painting. The base of all my paintings are photos I did by myself which are reworked on my computer before I print them out. My ambition is to create
unique pieces of art to bring anykind of room to life.
