Marco Antonio Palomeque was born in Mexico in 1973. He resides in Mexico City and Chiapas. The roots of his painting can be found in the hyperrealist school, his work competing with reality itself. His still lifes are alive! Immersed in color, the texture and volume of his fruits virtually leave the canvas behind. His brush strokes, at once subtle and precise, are full of sensuality. Combined with impeccable technique, Marco achieves a detailed result via form, color, light and shadow.
Though his artistic statements seem to compete with reality, nevertheless, Palomeque manages to enter nature and recreate it in his art. In his paintings, his appeal to the senses hit their mark and capture the spectator's attention. Through his composition and expression, we are brought closer to the smells, the taste and the touch of his forms realized in oil on canvas.
