biography

Inspired by ancient animated film techniques and street art culture, Marcelo Valente (aka Oyo Miami) produces low-tech animation films for contextual and site specific projects, collaborating at the same time with street art and theatre artists as well musicians, performers and school teachers.

Since his graduation at the Fine Arts School of Porto in Design & Graphic Arts Communication in 2004, he began working with the street art theater company Komplex Kapharnaüm in their shows and site-specific installations in France and abroad, developing professional film animation skills and live performance techniques.

During that time, he also starts working with Cie Persona, a young portuguese multidisciplinary theatre company. With them, he gave a first step aside from a classic movie projection, by inviting the actors of his films to leave the screen and enter "on stage" during the film’s projection, as that happens with A.Z.E.R.T. project.

In 2008 emerge the 170cm collective from a small group of Komplex Kapharnaüm's artists. With then, he develops his first experimental audiovisual narratives with Focus and FocusLab projects. Those experiences had a major influence in his today's work.

Since 2014, Marcelo Valente develops with the designer Magalie Rastello un multidisciplinary studio called Atelier Optique. Based in Lyon, it produces contextual, performative and educational projects that bring together visual artists, musicians, live performance technicians, computer engineers and multimedia developers.
