Marcelo Daldoce (b. 1979) is a Brazilian artist, living and working in New York City. In 2016, he acquired his MFA from the New York Academy of Art, with generous funding from the John's Brady Award and J. Rose & J.L. Weinberg Charitable Trust Scholarship. He has shown in museums in Austria and Bahia/Brazil, art fairs, and private collections. He has been in group shows in Brazil, NYC, Sotheby's, among other galleries internationally.
His work has been published on the cover of There Magazine and GQ Magazine. Daldoce's works are also being featured in Juxtapose and Hifructose among other art publications. Through the New York Academy of Art, he earned residencies at the Leipzig International Art Program in Germany and Eric Fischl Residency in Maryland.
Daldoce's primary medium is watercolor. For more than 15 years, he has been uniquely transforming it. His skill, style, and subjects have infused the medium with contemporary vitality.
The creative process he uses when creating his own art is the same he teaches. With more than 5 years of watercolor teaching experience, his instruction and practices allow the medium to express itself and create images that are alive. His goal, by exemplifying how to cause accidents without losing control, is for his students to win trust and obtain definitive results in this unforgiving technique.
