About Marco Busoni

Marco Busoni I studied aeronautical engineering and specialized in computational fluid dynamics. However, over the years I have changed jobs several times, seeking a need to express myself creatively. Currently, I work in information technology and occasional as a photographer and as a digital artist, but my main interest is painting.

Over the last 20 years I've expressed myself mainly through painting, developing my skill and professionalism. Yet, there are times I still feel like a student totally charmed by light and it’s spectacular show of colors, both subtle and intense. In fact, in many ways light is the main driver of my art. I love to explore its evanescent effects, observing and rendering them with oil colors.
Panting is an individual activity jet inspiration and skill comes from comparing with other artists. Over the years I’ve joined several associations and in 2003 I began my collaboration with the "Bottega dell'Arte" after a few years I became a member of the teachers team and I still teach oil painting there in the evenings, in 2008 I was elected as President and I still have that role. The association is bound to Brianza, the hilly region in northern Italy where I work and live but is active nationwide and in several European countries.

About 15 years ago I painted my first mermaid after being inspired by a beautiful sunset and a lady laying on the beach. This artwork had unexpected success and internet spread her charm worldwide, it was my first canvas to cross the ocean from Italy to the United States followed by many others.
I love to paint landscapes, seascapes, portraits, animals and fantasies, but mermaids have become one of my favorite subjects and is now considered my artistic brand.
The mermaid is a wonderful way to represent the natural sensuality of woman and it also brings a sense of magic that I see behind many aspects of our everyday reality. This mixture of reality and vision is inspiring because it forces me, as the artist, to set my imagination to work and create something that goes beyond the photographic reference. It's also a technical challenge because I want to make a fantasy appear almost real and certainly believable.
