A world-renowned master of his art

Marco Augusto Dueñas is a world-renowned marble sculptor recognized for his unique artistic versatility to create iconic and timeless works of art.

Dueñas is the only living sculptor to have his works stand alongside those of Michelangelo Buonarroti in the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Basilica church, and he is the youngest artist ever to create two pieces, in this case, monumental marble statues.

Working in many different mediums including bronze, wood, and the world-famous Carrara marble, Dueñas sculpts pieces that are both sympathetic to the history of his craft yet also speak to the contemporary mind. His commissioned works reside in both public and private collections all over the world, from aspiring collectors, Cathedrals and Monarchies- in the USA, Lebanon, Mexico, Argentina, Japan, UK and many more European countries.

A Spaniard from Cordoba, Marco Augusto lives in Tuscany, Italy, with his wife, Kate and their son. They reside in Pietrasanta, “The City of Arts”.
