Artist profile:

Leandro Marcelino
He was born in 1987 in Canary Islands, Spain.
Resides and works in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Specializing in ceramic sculpture, Marcelino is best known for his evocative works crafted from natural clays and materials, often displayed out of their conventional context or imbued with personal narratives tied to the land. His artistry navigates the intersection between societal inquiry and the intimate relationship individuals share with the landscape and nature.
Marcelino’s work is characterized by a profound exploration of questions pertaining to society and personal connections to the environment. Through his ceramic sculptures and installations, he invites viewers to contemplate themes of identity, belonging, and ecological consciousness. Noteworthy among his projects is the establishment of the first handmade ceramic store in 2015 in Ho Chi Minh City, “Hey Camel Ceramics”, an endeavor that underscores his commitment to fostering a vibrant artistic community and promoting the craft of ceramics within the region.
