Marcelo Daldoce is a Brazilian artist living and working in New York City. Daldoce has shown in museums in Austria and Brazil, as well as at art fairs and in private collections. His work has also been featured in group exhibits in Brazil, New York city, Sotheby’s, and many other galleries around the world, as well as on the cover of various art publications and mainstream magazines such as There and GQ.
Marcelo Daldoce merges the natural with the fantastical as he depicts forest landscapes in his current work, titled “Living Under The Canopy”. This series captures a selection of forest views, some amidst the underbrush, others glancing the canopy, all drawn from a mixture of living landscapes and ethereal realms from inside the artist’s mind. Daldoce’s primary medium of watercolor contributes to the expression of these landscapes. For more than 15 years, he has been transforming the medium, using his personal skill and style to infuse the familiarity of watercolor with contemporary vitality.
Daldoce intends for his work to reflect the many migrations he has taken throughout his life, both physical and cultural. His watercolors and prints imply a constant state of change and challenge, and subsequent construction and adaptation. His artistic process is a personal journey of self-discovery and self-identification, of finding belonging in the unfamiliar.
“Living Under The Canopy” includes watercolors, drawings, and prints from forests all over the world. Daldoce’s work highlights the beauty of forest landscapes, and reminds us of the powerful role that they play not only in the world’s ecosystems, but also in our collective imagination.
