Artist Statement

My paintings in New York. (Free watercolor with every painting sold, one for each $100 you spend) Hi, this online art exhibit forms part of my production during the last 25 years. Here you will find different aspects of my struggle to survive as a visual artist using the most eclectic approach to adapt and fulfill my needs. Usually to communicate my ideas I paint. Painting is my language and through my artwork you can perceive my ideas. New york has served me as a source of inspiration and learning the past 25 years. Somehow I feel that New York reinforces my roots. It evokes a nostalgia for the ancient cultures of the Olmec, Maya, Chibcha, and Inca, cultures which strongly influenced Central America and specifically Costa Rica, were I was born. Please check the videos to the left side of the screen to take a look at the free watercolors. Thank you. Sincerely, Hector Marin-Arias I AM OFFERING FREE ART LESSONS, PLEASE CHECK MY VIDEOS FOR WATERCOLOR PAINTING. MORE VIDEOS ARE COMING SOON. ...
