While walking at the south end of Central Park one night in February, I stopped by to visit the monument to Jose Marti on 59th street. I was showing my wife around the city and since we are both Cubans, we thought it appropriate to visit the large monument dedicated to the memory of the great Cuban leader and poet. As we left the park to cross 59th street, I was struck by the the view looking down 6th Avenue which is also known as Avenue of the Americas.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes varnished and wired to hang.

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.
