Marcelo Daldoce

Marcelo Daldoce (b. 1979) is a Brazilian artist living and working in New York City. In 2016, he acquired his MFA from the New York Academy of Art with generous funding from the John's Brady Award and J. Rose & J.L. Weinberg Charitable Trust Scholarship. His work has been exhibited in numerous international galleries and art fairs, as well as at Sotheby’s New York.

He has earned residencies at the Leipzig International Art Program in Germany and Eric Fischl Residency in Maryland. Daldoce’s work has also been featured in publications such as Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, as well as on the cover of GQ Magazine. Daldoce has worked in watercolor for over 15 years, citing the freshness and unpredictability of the medium as the reason for his preference. His unique skill (he only works from live models), style and subjects infuse his works with contemporary vitality. His influences include John Singer Sargent, particularly the artist’s fluid watercolors from the early 1900s that were hailed as experimental for their time. His work is inspired by the diversity of the human form and presents a fresh approach to figurative painting.

His work has been featured at The Untitled Space in solo show, “Figurations“, as well as group shows SHE INSPIRES, BODY BEAUTIFUL, and the Art4Equality Benefit Exhibit and auction.
