Rocco Marvaso

Born in Genoa (I) 1979

Since 1999 until 2003 I studied Painting at the local Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti in Genoa;

2000-2001 I attended the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich (Germany)

2003 I got a laurea in the Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti mit dem valuation of 110 cum lauda, presenting an essay with the title: "Copying paintings".

I work and live between Munich and Cittanova.

I began 2000 to cut in wood and print by hand small graphics, and since 2004 I'm taking part at different international graphic-competitions and expositions. Different printed works of mine are kept in private and public art-collections in Germany, Italy, Turkey and Poland.

Other activities of mine are singing - especially at this time I research on my own the possibilities of throath singing, also known as overtone singing -, travelling through Italy on a rickshaw, and practicing permaculture in Southern Italy.
