Marcio Melo is a figurative painter. His painting can be characterized as bold and colourful, ranging from stylized to realistic. He typically works from imagination and his themes run from Brazilian Candomblé Saints to Canadian wildlife and everything in between. The paintings typically include people or animals, often with fantastic or spiritual imagery as elements. Marcio works in watercolour, acrylics, oils and crayon conté. He works mainly on paper and canvas. Often he handpaints the frames, matching them to the painting, or sometimes the painting extends into the area of the frame.

Marcio came to Canada from Brazil in 1987. He feels comfortable with the languages and culture, and has made Canada his home. In Brazil, Marcio worked in architecture and design, mainly in heritage preservation in the four-century-old cities of Recife and Olinda.
