Marco Mazzoni was born in 1982 in Tortona, Italy, and is currently based in Milan. In 2007, he received a bachelor’s degree in painting from Brera Art Academy in Milan. Mazzoni holds a strong interest in medicinal properties of plants and the female herbalists of 16th—18th Century Sardinia who conserved their culture through oral traditions. His work has been exhibited in galleries throughout Europe and the United States.
"The detail in Marco’s work is breathtaking, every piece is a visual feast. His subject of the empowered feminine of the past, who needs to hide her identify for fear of being persecuted, speaks to my soul."
