Marlon Bravo Vildozo was born on 23 December 1957 in Tacna, Peru. An accident was the reason why he became tetraplegic in 1975. He is therefore unable to use arms and legs. In 1981 he moved to Sweden, and went to live in Göteborg. He learned Swedish and became a citizen of this European country. In 1995 he began to take painting lessons. He came to enjoy mouth painting very much as there was a lot for him to learn. From 2000 onwards he received a scholarship from the Association. In 2009 he was admitted to the family of mouth and foot painting artists as an Associate Member. In 2011 he became a Full Member of VDMFK.
Marlon Bravo Vildozo takes private lessons to continue his artistic education. This is the best way for him to expand and consolidate his skills. He prefers painting in oils. Among his favourite themes are still lives and portraits.
