Onelio Marrero
Rockaway, New Jersey

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.

Hello Onelio! The Fedex truck kept the painting on his truck for a week after the delivery date according to the tracking so we were getting very impatient! But so worth the wait!! City of Mirrors is even more wonderful in person. I love your work!!!

Onelio Marrero 9/1/2017 | 6:49 PM

Thanks for your comments. Your are too kind. Congratulations on you retirement! I retired from teaching in June of 2016 and have been able to paint a lot more. It's wonderful to be able to devote more time to my artwork.

R Jones 9/1/2017 | 12:16 PM

Hi, Onelio! Bob Jones in Fort Myers here. Still love my collection of your work. As I was removing all the art getting ready for the interior painter, Had a chance to reflect on each piece and remember the thrill when each one arrived from Fed Ex. It's been years and I'm happy to see your current work. Outstanding as always, especially Wedding Toast! I'm 75 now and retired since 2009. I hope this finds you and family happy and well. You have played such a big part in my appreciation of original art. Blessings, Bob

Onelio Marrero 8/6/2017 | 7:22 AM

I bought my first painting by Mr. Marrero almost 10 years ago. Thrilled to have acquired one of his water lily paintings. Looking forward to the next one.

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!

Onelio Marrero 3/21/2017 | 3:27 PM

Thank you for posting such a meaningful comment. I am so glad that the painting serves to remind you of an important time in your life. May you enjoy it for many years in peace and good health. Onelio

commentsBuca di Beppo Before the Rush
B Valley purchased this artwork. 3/21/2017 | 2:52 PM

Actual painting exceeded expectations. Yes it certainly triggered a memory back thirty plus years of a dinner at a small, Italian New York restaurant which was a seminal point in my life. The impressionistic style fits perfectly with the vagueness of my recollection. The warm colors totally reflect the mood of that night. So as the song says "thanks for the memories".

Thanks so much for leaving your comment. I am glad you enjoy it.

K Burke 2/21/2017 | 8:08 PM

This painting is named appropriately, for it brings serenity to the one gazing at it! Very peaceful and calm and the water looks so real it feels as if one might be splashed by a wayward drop as you pass by. Thank you so much for this magnificent calming piece!

Onelio Marrero 1/9/2017 | 1:40 PM

Thank you so much for your positive comment. The painting shows a place that I found enchanting. Enjoy!

commentsTwo Man Pour
A Danso purchased this artwork. 9/23/2016 | 2:43 PM

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.
