from Eze, France
Marc Ferrero was born in 1963.
Inventor and creator of the Storytelling Art, he begins drawing influenced by Comics.
Passionate about TV series and movies from the 70s, he realizes the need to fragment and section stories.
Despite the fact that he is a self made man, the path he followedduring his training is somewhat classic: a long apprenticeship focused on drawing and sketching (black lead, charcoal, black and white, gouache then acrylic and oils).
He completes his studieswhile 16 years old to complete personal projects designed to allow him to travel extensively and start developing his inspiration towards the creation of stories giving life to his own characters and actors.
At 26, with a clear vision and well developed script,he moves to Brussels to present and promote his first sketches and story boards to Comics editors. Meanwhile, he wins the prize Oliver STRELLI for his story board telling titled 'Art in the City'. It is while in Paris that Marc experiments with large scale and decides to depart from the universe of Comics to move into Contemporary/ Modern Art, which results in a art exhibition in 1992 where he presents for the first time his project titled 'Once upon a time the Comitive', a romanesque adventure taking place between New York and Monaco where three principal characters are given life on painting. Those are Lisa L' Aventura and her glamorous world, Duke a British dandy fan of Jazz and Cello, professional Polo player and Tango dancer.
He sells his first creations.
He participates in his first Contemporary art exhibit in New York in 1999 and opens his own gallery upon his return first in Eze then in Saint Paul de Vence (both on the French Riviera).
So far, over 7000 master pieces have entered private collections around the world withno less than 2000 in the US alone and he now collaborates very closely with the film industry.https://www.ferreroart.com/
