Marcelo Burgos

Marcelo Burgos nació en La Plata, Argentina, en 1971. Es un artista multidisciplinar que desarrolla su trabajo con un denominador común: el de ‘crear historias’, ya sea en el ámbito de la escultura, el grabado, la dirección cinematográfica, la ilustración o el diseño. Su trabajo tiene siempre un elemento narrativo subyacente, una anécdota o un recuerdo de infancia, del cual parten todas las obras y creaciones. La expansión y la tensión del trabajo como director se compensan con la introspección y soledad del trabajo de taller, creando un equilibrio donde todas las disciplinas que desarrolla se nutren unas de otras. ‘Mitomanía’ es su primera obra para Siesta. 

Marcelo Burgos was born in La Plata, Argentina, in 1971. He is a multidisciplinary artist that creates his work with a common thread that runs through all his work: he aims to ‘create stories’ through sculpture, printmaking, illustration or design.  His work always emerges from an underlying concept, a narrative element, an anecdote, a childhood memory that he builds up into his creative work. The speed and strain of his director’s activity is offset by the introspection and solitude of his artistic work, creating a fine balance between all the disciplines he works in and allows them to nurture each other. ‘Mithomaniac’ is his first book for Siesta.
