Melkio

Melkio was born in Genoa in 1984 and has always drawn.
He himself defines what it always means for Melkio:
“…for as long as I can remember I have always had a pencil in my hand and a piece of paper to scribble on.
For me it's the most natural thing I can do, I've always taken it for granted and I've always thrown everything away..."
Over the years he developed some occasional artistic projects, considered as moments of leisure while working in the marketing sector.
During the lockdown of 2020 he decided to dedicate himself completely to art and thus began his journey.
Melkio is a phygital (physical – digital) artist, that is, she works indifferently with both matter and digital, ranging from projection animation, NFT to the painting and decoration of objects, managing to keep her identity clear on any support.
His work is characterized by the use of few colours, mainly white, black and red, a strong line and the constant dialogue of his characters.
His works convey their romantic character to the observer.
the very intimate concepts are expressed in his works of art, from social topics to science fiction ones, translated into a language with a childish, sometimes surreal inspiration.
