ECO SKATE RIO
Marcelo Eco is part of the first generation of graffiti artist in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His trademark and brand character is known as the “Pointy Chin” and is created with long, lineal, and quick strokes. It is normal to find his characters all over Rio de Janeiro. The bodies, by three dimensional effects, seem to dive in and out of the walls. Eco is accustomed to transitioning with fluidity from painting in the streets on his own, as well as the corporate world for large companies such as Sony, Brookfield and Jonny Walker. He has performed his work all over the world in places such as Italy, Holland, France, Spain, Germany, Argentina and Angola. He does projects and set designs for music videos as well as shows for the most popular TV channels in Brazil. His key exhibits are: Art Paris located in the Grand Palais (France), Galerie Adler Paris (France), Gallery (LCG RJ-Madrid/Spain), WSA (Argentina), MAC – Museum of Contemporary Art (Niterói, RJ), MAM – Museum of Modern Art (RJ) and MuBE – Brazilian Museum of Sculpture (SP).
