One of the main sidewalks along the Grand Canal in Venice. Part of the Rialto Bridge is visible just beyond the outdoor restaurants. Onelio recently spent a few days in Venice, and like most people, he fell in love with the city. "Whether the days were brilliant or rainy, walking the labyrinthine streets was always breathtaking," says Onelio. "I fell in love with all the masonry, especially the way the basalt pavers looked in the rain."

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.
