Marcelo Burlon is a trailblazer. He moves across milieus and disciplines with remarkable ease, embodying that defining contemporary quality: liquidity. Averse to cultural and geographic borders, Burlon is first and foremost a polymath: a much sough-after party organizer, dj, designer, photographer, nightlife wizard and general aggregator. He avoids definitions and cliches, however. Whatever he does, Burlon makes sure to push boundaries: that’s just a natural urge. And this is why his far-stretching oeuvre is an endlessly morphing document of the progressive power of cross-pollination. Invention, for Burlon, is in the mix.
Biography is the background to such a fluid vision. Marcelo Burlon, in fact, has been immersed in a culturally-varied milieu from day one, having been raised in El Bolson, Argentina, where the first hippies merged with gauchos. Transplanted to Italy barely as a teenager, he made his way into nightlife, then took over Milan to conquer the world.
Burlon has the widely acknowledged talent of acting as the catalyst: he is, simply put, a gatherer of people and creative energies. Which explains why everybody from revered fashion houses to global brands entrust their parties, show soundtracks and social activities in his hands. The fuel of authenticity - something people can actually feel - makes him truly unique. As he tests his hands with diverse disciplines, Burlon’s network keeps growing and growing, constantly redefining the very notion, and the who’s who, of cool.
Ultimately, should a definition be needed, Marcelo Burlon is a 2.0 humanist. Joining people together is his creative medium, freewheeling associations are his method. He is the of officiator of a genuinely contemporary melting pot. A facilitator.
