I often paddle my kayak on the Rockaway River near my house in NJ. The river is quiet and peaceful having a lazy current most of the time. For my outbound journey I usually paddle eastward following the river downstream. This way I can enjoy the beauty of its banks. Needless to say, I was struck by the way the autumn leaves created an explosion of color that reflects on the water like an antiphonal song.

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.

I purchased your "Bubble Meditation" and absolutely love it. I am not a connoisseur, just a normal person that likes what I like. I love a painting that pulls me into it and makes me part of the moment, your paintings do that. I will enjoy my painting for a long time to come. Thank you!- D Gibson
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.- A Danso
