Marcello Scarselli was born in Santa Maria a Monte, in the province of Pisa, in 1953.
Graduated from the State Technical Institute of Pontedera, he attended courses in drawing, carving and subsequently in engraving at the International School of Graphics) “Il Bisonte” in Florence.
Marcello Scarselli started his artistic career in the 1970s, taking part in several collective exhibitions, as well as in the lively aesthetic debate in the same period. Decisive for his vocational training were meetings,friendships and cultural exchanges with several Tuscan artists.
Scarselli's early works are marked by a realistic representation; subsequently they turn towards the rendering of an idea of the "real" pictorial rediscovered internally by way of memory and intuition and expressed through the continuous experimentation of avant-garde techniques and contents. As the critic Giuseppe Cordoni points out, "most of the critics have repeatedly stressed the flexible (ductile) complexity and stylistic eclecticism that feeds the synthesis to which Scarselli's language gradually reaches: abstract and informal expressionism, sign gestures and childish oneirism" .the ductile complexity and stylistic eclecticism that feeds the synthesis to which Scarselli's language gradually reaches: abstract and informal expressionism, sign gestures and childish oneirism".
