Marcus Vinicius De Paula is a Brazilian-American multidisciplinary artist designing with light for over 15 years across theater, film, and live performance.

De Paula's current practice at his DUMBO studio focuses on sculpting light objects as imagined relics from another world, inspired by his father's career as a NASA engineer.

Working in stone, glass, neon, and resin, De Paula crafts monolithic forms evoking sci-fi symbolism seeking to engender a discussion of civilizational fragility.
