Marcos Milewski (b.1959 in Córdoba, Argentina) is a painter of Polish origin and Argentinian nationality, and is one of the best known artists working in Madeira
today. His work is playful, whimsical but substantive at the same time, veering as it does between Symbolist and Surrealist fantasies. Some of his enormous street murals can be seen in central Funchal and are illustrated below.
Defining Milewski`s painting according to fashionable artistic tendencies would be too simplistic because his inspirational sources span several cultures and influences: from Renaissance artists such as Jan van Eyck, running through to XXth century artists such as Rene Magritte and Balthus.
Art Center Caravel is proud to hold the largest collection of Milewski`s work available for sale to the public.
