While Onelio was visiting the midtown area of Manhattan on a cold winter day in December, he was inspired to capture this busy cross section on Times Square. "The fading sunlight over the city plays tricks as the glass skyscrapers reflect light while simultaneously creating long shadows," he explains. As the sunlight faded, Onelio was challenged by the jumbo screens that fill nearly every building and compete with the natural light.

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.
