Andrea Marcoccia was born in Rome in 1974. A self-taught painter, his earliest venture was street art, the underground painting style typical of abandoned urban areas that so heavily influenced the artists of his generation.
Building on his early experimentation with graffiti writing, since 2002 he has concentrated entirely on drawing and painting. The urban landscapes of disused warehouses, abandoned factories and outlying streets that used to be his painting surfaces, remain distinctive features in his new artistic explorations. In 2007, he began exhibiting in numerous Italian galleries, arousing the interest of critics and collectors. He lives and works in Rome.
