Presentation Type: Talk
Guest artist Mario Andres Robinson joins Winslow Art Center owner/director Martha to talk about his art and creative process. Mario was born in Altus, Oklahoma, where he resided with his family before relocating to New Jersey at the age of twelve. He studied at the prestigious Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York and was later chosen to be a Brand Ambassador for Winsor and Newton art materials. He is the author of “Lessons in Realistic Watercolor,” a comprehensive guide of the artist’s watercolor techniques (Monacelli Press).
Mario’s work fits squarely within the tradition of American painting. His finished works bear a close affinity to the masters of the realist tradition, Andrew Wyeth and Thomas Eakins. Containing few references to modern life, it has a timeless and universal quality, and exhibits a distinct turn-of-the-century stylistic aesthetic. The images he chooses, which refer to a bygone era where solitude and reflection were abundant, also provoke frequent allusions to the paintings of Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper. Mario is an Exhibiting Artist Member (EAM) of The National Arts Club, an Artist Member of The Salmagundi Club and a Signature Member of The Pastel Society of America. His work has been featured several times in The Artist’s Magazine, The Pastel Journal, Watercolor Magic, American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur and on the cover of American Artist magazine. In the February, 2006 issue of The Artist’s Magazine, Mario was selected as one of the top 20 realist artists under the age of 40.
