Artist

Onelio Marrero
Rockaway, New Jersey

Onelio Marrero paints city scenes of everyday life. In an impressionistic style he captures the romanticism of New York City, the picturesque fountains in Central Park and the wet city streets after a rainy afternoon. His use of warm tones creates a sense of nostalgia and the feeling that you have visited or seen this particular scene before. Onelio will often paint from direct observation, or he will work from a combination of photographs and combine numerous sources into one piece. In this way his work combines reality with fantasy, creating a new story with each painting. His work captures an appreciation for beauty in all of its greatest forms; nature, art, and people.

A Danso purchased this artwork. 9/23/2016 | 2:43 PM

I love my “Two Man Pour” painting as it is detailed by nature. I saw mirror image and mirror reflection with facial features, which are exquisitely realistic. The rust medium reminds me of Jean-Honore Fragonard. My next painting from you was going to be ‘Almost Closing Time” which I lost to another collector. ‘When you snooze, you lose’ It will not happen again. Bravo Onelio Marrero.

Comments About This Piece

Walking on the New York City streets is always interesting regardless of the time or the weather. Sometimes for me, early morning is best. The streets are just beginning to fill with people going to work or heading out to shop. For this particular scene I wanted to get that early morning and slightly lonely feel. I also strove to capture the look of the wet pavement and the muted colors. I used the lighting in the store windows to contrast their vivid colors with the subdued colors of the street. In a sense, it's like the false world of manikins and accessories is competing with the poetic reality of the city.
The painting is varnished, wired and ready to hang. The edges of the gallery wrapped canvas are clean white.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.
