About

MARCO DASILVA was born and raised in NYC. He received his BFA in Painting and Drawing at SUNY New Paltz. His works explore the notions of euphoria, polarity and excess through his graphic style of painting, often using bright neon colors to evoke a tropical mood of vice and opulence. He creates his own mythology in the process, providing a richly saturated landscape of his own world to the viewer.
