Marcio Bahia Biography:


Márcio Sousa Santos, better known as Mácio Bahia, was born in 1983 in Bahia, Brasil. He early discovered interest and love for the world of arts and has been dedicated to drawing and painting ever since.
In 2000, Márcio Bahia moved to Porto Seguro, Bahia, where he started his artistic career.
In 2008, he decided to broaden his artistic horizons by moving to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal.
Through Márcio's use of strong colours, he is able to communicate his joy life in his paintings. His paintings often show his rich and diverse roots.
The use of the floating head has become his charismatic and unique signature style, allowing his work to be distintinctive and unmistakable.
