He is a Spanish plastic artist born in Gijón, Asturias. Despite his young age, he is one of the most prominent artists on the Spanish pictorial scene, since at just thirty years old he already has several works exhibited in world-class museums such as The Hispanic Society Museum, as well as in galleries of all the world.
It has a constant and active participation in international art fairs, in cities like New York, Miami, Brussels, Geneva, Karlsruhe... Being present in more than ten a year. As a complement to this promising career, Marcos Tamargo is in charge of portraying the winners of the Prince of Asturias Award, as well as His Majesty King Felipe.
Marcos Tamargo is a painter who mainly works with an abstract-figurative language, creating works that are especially vital because they are intimately linked to his personal life. One of his most important and identifiable features is the use and transformation of matter in the form of textures, collected in the different places or situations that his work speaks of, in order to capture on the canvas the exact essence of the material, in a palpable way.
As for his technique, he includes all the conventional registers: oil, acrylic, enamels... on all kinds of supports (paper, canvas, cardboard...) In addition to technical techniques, Marcos Tamargo is the creator of a new contribution to painting that he calls himself Moveart. These are two different works on the same canvas, one visible in a conventional way and the other appearing only under a black light. In this way, a single work can show a landscape, and when there is no light, it changes dramatically to produce, for example, a portrait.
To commemorate the ten years of the Rodrigo Juarranz Gallery (12-16-2006) and within its entrepreneurial spirit, an ambitious project has been undertaken: The Artist's Book: Spiritual Canticle of Saint John of the Cross, considered the most important text of Spanish mysticism. This is the edition of the 39 stanzas accompanied by six engravings and an original drawing in each book by renowned artist Marcos Tamargo. The project is global in nature as it has been published in 11 languages: Spanish, German, French, Mandarin Chinese, English, Hindi, Arabic, Korean, Japanese, Russian and Portuguese. It has been presented internationally and nationally at Art Madrid '17.
