About

Dalessio presents to us an image of irony in "A Plein Air Koons." Contemporary art phenomenon Jeff Koons, makes headlines for his outstanding prices of large-scale sculptures. Dalessio captures one of these mega-priced sculptures in the most traditional way possible: a plein-air oil painting. Situated in downtown manhattan in the shadow of the new One World Trade Center, is"Balloon Flower (Red)", standing proud amidst a circular fountain, elegantly reflecting the city around it. Water shoots upwards bordering the large sculpture. Pigeons scatter around the edge of the fountain. Marc Dalessio was born in 1972 in Los Angeles, California. Even in his earliest years, it was evident that his passion was art. In 1989 he started at the University of California at Santa Cruz where he focused on both art and biology. During his time in Santa Cruz, Marc experimented with different schools of painting and spent much of his spare time studying the history and culture of the profession. He finished his outstanding academic career, graduating Phi Beta Kappa, in 1992. After university, Marc moved to Florence, Italy, where he spent the next eight years developing his style and refining his technique. Initially, Marc studied under Svetlan Kracsyna at Il Bisonte International School of Graphic Arts, where he earned a master printmaker degree. From there he went on to train as a portraitist at a small traditional painting atelier. Marc has emerged as a true master of his craft. Whether his work depicts an Indian landscape or an Italian businessman, the lines and color in his paintings attempt to reveal the nature of his subjects. In his portraits, he works to find the essence of the model, trying to use the true character of the individual to decide the mood of the painting. His plein air landscapes, which range in subject from exotic locations around the world to his own backyard, attempt to capture both the present and the history of the environment, touching the soul with his own unique view of the scenery. In all his works, his dedication to light and color, and the subtly of his subjects, enraptures even the most casual observer.
