Fabian Marcaccio Biography

Fabian Marcaccio’s work investigates whether the traditional medium of painting can survive in the digital age. He has used printmaking transfer techniques to make paintings and became well know in the 1990s for his manipulations of the conventions of painting. More recently, he has relied upon digital and industrial techniques to infuse his painting process with spatial and temporal concerns. The results are environmental paintings, animations, and “Paintants” that combine digitally manipulated imagery, sculptural form, and three dimensionally painted surfaces.

Born in Rosario de Santa Fe, Argentina, in 1963, the former philosophy student, Fabian Marcaccio, has made a name for himself in numerous German exhibitions, including the Kölnischer Kunstverein, the Württembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart, the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt and, more recently, the Georg Kolbe Museum in Berlin, the Haus Esters in Krefeld, and the Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg.
