Gezo Marques started the Oficina Marques project for the need to materialize and tell stories with their own hands, currently the project is shared with artist José Aparício Gonçalves.

Together they form a team that celebrates the cycles of life, memories, scars and second chances, all with a great sense of humor.

Today Oficina Marques has a wide reach, having pieces and interior design projects spread around the world, counting and being part of new narratives.

In love with objects. They have street, nature, markets and life histories as permanent sources of inspiration, from which they collect objects and materials. In fact most of the process is collecting, in a constant search and discovery to make new connections.

"Let's save and accumulate, so the workshop is like a large waiting room where pieces of wood, pottery, furniture or old dolls await a new life and history."

Creating over "things that have already been" allows us to exercise the way we look at objects, because they are like a skeleton that already exists and we give new skin and clothing. It is a work of creating other ways of seeing, of thinking the world and ourselves.

With a multifaceted and plural work, the pieces are unique and exclusive. It is possible to affirm that there is life within each piece, the result of the mutual dialogue between artists and materials.
