Marcelo Conrado was born in Prudentópolis (PR), in 1976. He undergraduated in Law (1999), and holds a master’s degree in Legal Science (2007) from Faculdade Estadual de Direito do Norte Pioneiro, in Jacarezinho (PR). He is a Doctor in Law from the Federal University of Paraná, where he works as a professor. He began to study arts at the Youth Center for Fine Arts in Prudentópolis. He then perfected himself with artists in Jacarezinho and Curitiba, where he took up residence. His production includes several expressions, such as drawing and installation. It is in painting, however, that the artist's dedication is most evident. Abstractionism, initially colored, became solid in black and white, sustaining his creativity and subjectivity, and leading him to new forms of expression.
