Marcelo Boix

Born in Mar del Plata, Argentina 1967 the artwork of Marcelo Jorge Boix takes it’s inspiration from children’s toys, furniture & decorative objects from the – mid century/atomic era. In the last years, vintage space toys play an important role as part of his paintings subject. The visual richness of their vivid colours, metal appearance and streamlined design have captured the artist’s interest for many years. Marcelo Boix has exhibited in Buenos Aires, United States and Spain amongst other countries.

ARTIST STATEMENT: » I see these toys as a sort of time capsule where one can imagine how those toys were once an object of joy, in untold hours of play… old toys are full of Love». My goal is to capture their vitality and play with visual textures and intertwined patterns.
