Carlo Marchiori was born in the Veneto region of Italy in 1937. He was educated at the renowned art schools of Padua and Venice, where he learned the classical techniques of trompe l'oeil and figurative painting. He has created paintings and murals that depict Commedia dell’Arte characters and Greco-Roman mythological figures, both human and animal.

Marchiori’s large scale murals and discrete works can be seen in notable hotels, restaurants and private residences in Asia, Europe, and North America. High profile venues include Raffles Hotel, Singapore; Tokyo Westin Hotel, and DisneySea Tokyo, Japan; Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur; Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas; St. Francis Hotel, San Francisco; Robert Mondavi, and Del Dotto Wineries, Napa Valley.

He currently divides his time between Napa Valley in California where he built Ca’Toga, a fantastical Palladian villa that serves as his residence & studio, and Bangkok.
