Walking on 42nd Street on a cold winter day in December of 2018, I was inspired to capture the bustling sidewalks and buildings near Time Square. The sidewalks around this time of year usually have barriers set up to prevent the foot traffic from J walking across this busy street. The buildings display their business names in bright lights. I was struck by two signs that hinted at the prevailing weather. "Coldstone Creamery" and the Disney musical "Frozen" both summed up the brisk atmosphere.

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.
