Marcos Mercado

Chicago, IL

Marcos grew up in Joliet, Illinois and received his Bachelor of Architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology, in Chicago. While there, Marcos was taught the art of hand-drafting – a skill which he still utilizes in his work whenever he can. Any time Marcos isn’t working on architecture, he spends his time painting or recording music with his friends. He is interested in the abstract similarities between art, architecture, and music, and is driven by this investigation in all these pursuits.

Marcos has had work on display at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
