MARCO BATTAGLINI Born 1969, lives and works in San José, Costa Rica

New Media artist Marco Battaglini creates pop art and surreal pieces incorporating elements of today’s culture with an otherworldly spin. Battaglini fuses classical imagery with pop art in order to create a new, distinct aesthetic that merges images of classic beauty with antithetical vulgarities and pop culture icons, creating a composition that is able to compliment both seemingly opposite realities. Battaglini’s works push viewers to think and imagine beyond the constraints of our time and what we are used to visually. By blending elements of the past with styles influenced by Andy Warhol and graffiti, Marco Battaglini is creating a hybrid reality where barriers and borders cease to exist and confine our perspectives.
