While I was accompanying my wife as she shopped at the Manhattan Anthropologie store, one of the salesladies was moving stock from one floor to another. The way she carried minimal amounts of clothing on each trip up and down the stairs added to the elegance of the place. I was also captivated by the contrast of rectilinear shapes and the beautiful arabesques in the railings. The warm lighting in that store is unlike most stores and lends itself well to minimalistic displays.

Getting to Know Onelio

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.
