My name is Marco Giollo and I am based in Magadino at the Lago Maggiore in Switzerlandand I am an artist.
I paint with acrylics and mixed media on canvas.
I do figurative and abstract art and also art on commission.

- How did you get to be involved in this project?

I was invited by Diana Lagalante to show the world what an artist can do with the Xymara Effect Pigments and their versatile manner - including art.
I think art meets design more and more these days.

- What is the biggest challenge in this project?

The biggest challenge in this project is to paint to combine both the industry with art.
I never know the direction and never know the outcome, until I find style and beauty in my work.

- Describe what you are planning for the installation?

I will exhibit 4 paintings of 100 x 100 inside the Theatre, which will give great exposure to the concept of working with Ciba Xymara pigments,
plus 9 paintings 30 x 30 do be given to the 9 nominated winners of the Xymara Design Award 2008.

- What makes working with Ciba Xymara products interesting/exciting?

Never saw before such light effects by using these pigments.
Plus the appearance of surface changes, looking at it from different angles.
It is unique and makes it very alive.
