Parágrafo is the first solo exhibition by Marco Franco, in which the musician and visual artist shows the production of drawings that he has been developing in the last five years. Best known for his vast musical career, which started in 1986, Marco Franco began to reveal another side of his artistic production, crystallized in this exhibition in which he shows around a hundred works on paper. Although still little known, this is a practice that accompanies him daily, arising from experimentation and repetition in graphic exercises, performed in an almost compulsive way, which gives rise to series of visual compositions that reveal a language created by Marco Franco, in which calligraphic and melodic gestures intersect.
