Artist Onelio Marrero paints impressionist city scenes of everyday life. He captures the romanticism of New York City, from the picturesque fountains in Central Park to a glistening city street on a rainy afternoon. He creates a sense of nostalgia and intimacy with his work, offering the feeling that you have visited this particular scene before. “Each play of light, each texture, and each movement of a figure can have a captivating effect on me,” says Onelio. He studied at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art where he mastered discerning color and values, giving his work a more spontaneous appearance. Onelio’s work is an appreciation for beauty in all of its greatest forms; nature, art, and people.

Hear What Collectors Say About Onelio's Work
Lenny’s readin’ in the living room. Nice work!
I like the piece, but it is several shades lighter than the image online. I prefer the darker.
When I first saw this painting was very impressed with the artistry, title and art noir feel of the scene. But something deeper drew me back a few times before making the purchase. Only after hanging and looking at it over several nights did I realize it was taking me back to a very special time and place. Finally inspiring a poem I pinned that I would make available to Onelio if desired.
I was so pleased with the painting, Onelio Marrero’s - Among The Collectibles, that I bought another of his paintings a couple of weeks later. That one, too, is a memorable image. I couldn’t be more pleased.
This piece is in my bedroom, one of the places in my home where I read often. My favorite thing about it is the soft colors that evoke a sense of comfort, relaxation and "coziness" as my daughter would say. I also love her reclined position which contributes further to the vibe of the painting.
I love it and have placed it in full view. My only complaint is that you did not offer framing.
The image is quite intimate, and the work was well done, exceeded my expectations....the artist was engaging and desiring to please the buyer. It was a great experience. The artwork has been framed in a gold floater....it looks terrific on the wall !
Mr. Marrero, This was a Christmas gift to my wife, commemorating a favorite travel destination, and she LOVED IT! I really respond to your paintings, and wish I had the right places for several more of them!
This painting brings so much tranquility & hope. I feel like I'm walking on this soothing nature path in the forest. The details are beautifully painted, the composition is perfect, and I love the chosen colors: the right greens & touch of pink and mauve . The artist is very talented. We're very happy about this purchase.
I could not be more happy with the two paintings by Mr. Marrero! They are beautiful! I wanted some original artwork for my office. As I looked through the oil paintings (hundreds or thousands), I loved all of his. In fact, I knew I wanted two, and it was difficult to decide which two to narrow it down to. I absolutely love the two paintings!
Thanks for the compliments! May you enjoy the paintings for many years to come.
Another treasured masterpiece by Mr. Marrero! Love it!
Lovely work by a talented artist.
Thanks so much for your comments about my work. I am so glad you like "City of Mirrors".
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!!!
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.
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
Thanks for continuing to follow my artwork. Glad you enjoy the water lily series. May you enjoy this piece for many years to come.
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.
Glad you enjoy the painting. May you enjoy it for many years to come.
Received the painting in excellent condition. I love it! Thank you!
Thanks so much for your wonderful comment. I am glad you enjoy the painting. May you enjoy it for many years to come.
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!
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
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.
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!
Thank you so much for your positive comment. The painting shows a place that I found enchanting. Enjoy!
I getting a wooden frame for the painting. It sets it off beautifully. Really nice painting.
Thank you so much for posting and sending in your comment. I am glad you are pleased with the painting you purchased. May you enjoy it in good health and peace for many years to come. Yours, Onelio
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.
