MARCO MONTEIRO HASSE, born in Zurich in 1987. Raised in Cape Town and relocated to Germany in the late ’90s. After a very diverse schooling career, he started his first Bachelor (Interior Design) in London, followed by further studies in Product Design at the University of Folkwang in Essen, Germany. Finishing his degree, his aim was to see the world first before working. The trip around the world had such an influence that he chased his ultimate dream to become a full-time artist. His head and heart were filled with emotion, color, sight, and sound in need of expression. Currently, Monteiro is located in Munich, working on Portraits and Animal Life. Initially working with Acrylic, Marco changed to Oils for his love of sensitivity and genuine expression.
