When his daughter was born with a critical heart condition requiring multiple hospital stays, Fabio searched for an escape and emotional release from deep emotions surging inside of him. During these intense periods of time, all of these emotions became part of Fabioʼs art. While his daughter progressed and recovered, Fabioʼs art became more uplifting and encouraging. Fabio’s art is reflective of what is going on as his life evolves. Symbolism is prominent within Fabio’s body of work. Trees, hearts and emotionally based characters usually grace any given piece. Fabio’s admiration for trees goes back to his high school days. The primary persona in Fabio’s art is Marcinevo: a lovable, rag-tag, childhood figure with mitten hands and a one button eye who has drawn on the walls of his cardboard box to create a world of his own. On the walls of this box Marcinevo takes journeys, ages, and experiences life.
