Marepe was born Marcos Ruis Peixoto in San Antonia de Jesus, Bahia in 1970.

The culture of this region; Bahia’s traditions and customs as well as its materials, inform Marepe’s conceptual sculptural practice, by either changing the function and status of common objects or the meaning of local street performances, creating lyrical gestures out of everyday life.
