Carlo Marchione is a freelance illustrator based out of a quaint Boston suburb, where the trees have brains. As one might expect, a love of drawing flourished at a young age. Fast-forward several years, and that love landed him a job drawing caricatures at the famed Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
A Bachelor's Degree in Illustration from UMass - Dartmouth was earned in 1994. Carlo was exposed to mediums of ink, paint, printmaking, and photography. This culminated in creating images on paper, and continues to this day. Since then his work has taken a nod from genres that include Fashion Illustration and Poster Art, allowing for a blend of line and color. Seeing the printed work of Ralph Steadman and Philip Burke also had a profound impact.
Carlo has always been intrigued by people and faces as subject matter. His influences range from David Downton, Ferenc Pinter, Shepard Fairey, Syd Mead, Alphons Mucha, Modigliani and Dale Stephanos. His work is mainly done with acrylic gouache and ink on paper.
He looks forward to new venues that will showcase his work.
