About Marcio Karam
Original art by Marcio Karam, a Brasilian arirbrush artist, now located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
We meet Brazillian born Body Painter, Marcio Karam and we ask him how he got the bodypainting bug â€¦.
â€œI was born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil and as a boy my first passion was surfing but then I found paint and began painting surf/skateboards,first for myself and then for my friends. The opportunity then came for me to move to the USA where surfing took a back seat and Art took over as my new meaning for life. As a young artist I had and tried many ideas and artforms; oil painting, acrylics, watercolor but in the end Airbrush became my media of choice and my father bought me my first full airbrush set up â€“ I was in heaven.
I later graduated with a degree in commercial arts and illustration, and then went on to work freelance and for various ad agencies until I felt I had he honed my skills and decided to go it alone. I opened my first studio MKARTS & DESIGN. Thatâ€™s when the art went wild, painting cars, bikes, boats, canvases and much more for clients, movies, tv commercials and anybody that wanted custom art, there was nothing that I wouldnâ€™t paint, My motto was â€œif you bring it to my shop iâ€™ll paint it!â€
As the studio grew the art kept getting better and better and soon I discovered a new medium â€˜Peopleâ€™. I started body painting models for photoshoots, tv ,print, car shows and conventions and pretty much any job you could think of and I now run my studio in South Florida with a couple of other artists and focus on creating some of the wildest body art on some beautifull Models. I love taking this art to a new levelâ€
