One of the things I enjoy most about New York City is the bustle of its streets. In this case the setting is Times Square. The granite island in the center is the location where tickets go on sale daily for broadways shows. The ticket line barriers are ubiquitous as are the jumbo screens that fill the eyes with an array of flashing color and light. In Manhattan, there are steam vents everywhere and in this case a vent gave off a cloud of steam at the point where all things seem to converge.

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.
