There are some people in this world that are just beautiful spirits. Marcos Marin is one of them. Multi-faceted and gifted, painter, graphic artist, optical art, sculptor as well as pianist.
Upon being introduced to Marcos at The Delano, one would never guess his great accomplishments and talents. He speaks so humbly of his works as Marcos describes his work as 'opt art'. Optical Art goes beyond drawing lines. This technique breathes life into the human image, adding unusual & dynamic lineage.
An invitation to his hand picked selection of attendees to view his exhibit at the Art House for the closing reception was not to be missed!
Arriving at the uber cute Biscayne Art House on Brickell, which sits just on the southern edge of 15th St, the initial impression is a fulfilled fantasy of having office/exhibit space just as fabulous. Parking does require some driving skill. Stumbling upon Bradford Paige and Marcello Boss at the entrance is always a treat.
After winding up 3 stories of an oval staircase, Promoter and Art Publisher Ninoska Huerta stepped over for a greeting. In a heavy accent, the ever so sweet Ninoska explained the intent of the exhibit in this space. She brought Marin into this art center to obtain recognition in Miami.
Marcos, heavy in conversation with attendees, manages his way through for a hello. Missing the Art Basel opening reception, due to his time in Singapore, the artist, so congenial and attentive, expresses how honored he is to be sharing the exhibit space with Dario Perez-Flores. Marin comments on the 85 yr old artist's whimsical piece of a french singer, and 'Procaromatic', the piece with rotating linear pillars.
Marin's next venture is to conquer New York. Sponsored by Biscayne Art House to do just that, that success will soon be under way. His intent is to do an exterior instillation with exposure to Park Avenue clientele. Just the idea alone creates visions of aesthetically pleasing additions to 5th Avenue window shopping.
Longtime friends arrive to greet Marcos, surprised by his new look of a ponytail. Jonathon Goldfarb poses for a photo next to a piece that Marin painted years ago with Goldfarb as a subject.
Ninoska brings out pieces of Marcos' work not yet seen as a secret surprise. As the artist signs his works, he holds them up to share the meaning of each piece. The works are graphics on paper with a feng shui symbol on each. 'Double Happiness', 'Longetvity' and more. Marcos added music to each piece, stating that there was always something missing from feng shui, sound! Of course he would know this, being a pianist, but unfortunately, the privilege of hearing him play will have to wait until the next venture.
Marin will do New York, after his travels to Shanghai, Monaco and Paris.
