Marcelo Holzinger was born in Argentina and began cultivating his artistic talents at a young age. He was naturally drawn to beauty, nature, art, music and sports. In his early pre-teen period his family went through a lot of adversity. Through it all, his mother taught him how to overcome challenges; she encouraged him to 'keep his feet on the ground, follow his dreams, and keep expressing himself.' He held onto her words, and they strengthened his feeling that anything is possible in life. He consistently put his best into everything he did, and he started to pursue his passions and dreams.
Marcelo enrolled in drawing classes, and later on he attended college in Buenos Aires, where he earned a degree in Advertising and Design. While in college he worked his way up in an advertising agency becoming its Art Director. He also taught Graphic Arts at the University of Buenos Aires.
His dreams lead him abroad, where he experienced other cultures. In his early 20's, as an adventurous young man, he traveled extensively throughout South America, Europe and the United States. The mix of cultures, the history, and the interaction with many people he encountered along the way, the timeless art, the wonderful designs and architecture that he experienced in his travels greatly impacted him as a person and broadened his artistic scope.
After having such intense experiences, Marcelo embarked on an even bigger challenge; in 1996 he moved to New York, a city he had fallen in love with - alone, with just a backpack, his CD player and an English dictionary. He turned obstacles into opportunities; he worked as a graphic designer and continued to pursue his passion for art and design.
The next stop on his journey was Miami Beach, where he lived and worked from 2000-2005. During this time, he branched out into other forms of artistic expression, including Interior Décor. He expanded and refined his design and artistic skills and became a creative consultant for various businesses and organizations. Next, his professional journey led him to Houston, where he continued painting, growing and evolving as an artist, and exhibiting his work in galleries and art shows.
In the current phase of his artistic progression, Marcelo has returned to Miami, a city whose colors, flavors and energy spark his creative imagination. He's been working non-stop on various artistic endeavors. His work continue to be featured in galleries, art exhibitions, and have been receiving the attention and recognition of national and international media.
Marcelo supports charitable causes, and feels blessed to be able to give back to his community whenever he can. He is thankful for having the ability to dream without limits, love deeply, be endlessly adventurous, and have a zest for life. Marcelo says: 'I feel blessed. I'm still growing, evolving, learning, and always exploring different things. I paint, design, create, and dream with passion . . . and with the intention of living every single moment of my life to the fullest.'
