Victor Ottavio Marcelli, artist

Coming from a family loaded with artistic talent, Victor’s natural artistic abilities in drawing, painting and design have served him well throughout his life, contributing to a successful career in graphic design, art direction, illustration and fine art. In 2002, Victor left the world of commercial art to concentrate on the fine art of drawing and painting from life, either posed figures or landscapes painted en plein air. Victor’s passion is for the challenge of quickly capturing the mood, light and likeness of a subject while at the same time injecting his personal interpretation of color. Many of Victor’s works from life might become reference for a larger scale painting he refers to as a “tableau” executed entirely in his studio, a good example of which is his tableau promoting the Marin County Half Marathon, 10k and 5k.
