Marco Evaristti is a provocative artist, born in Santiago, Chile, 1963. Evaristti studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.

Evaristti's work is known for its shock tactics, as in 2010 when he hosted a dinner party for his friends and served for the main meal pasta topped with a meatball made with his own fat, removed through liposuction earlier that year. Evaristti said of the piece: "Eat me, I am art, and the art devouring public will finally be satisfied."

Marco Evaristti lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Bangkok, Thailand.
