VICENTE MARZAL

Metamorphosis
November 11 - December 2, 2017
Reception: Thursday November 16, 2017 6-8 PM

From the mind of Vicente Marzal emerge unique paintings that blend naturalism with fantasy. As a child, Marzal was deaf, so he used art as an outlet to express his feelings and emotions. His paintings are filled with personal symbols that stem from his own life. For example, the black and white “zebra crossing” stripes are a symbol of Marzal’s deafness. He says that all his paintings come from his imagination, a combination of thoughts and experiences, which he sketches out in drafts before creating the final piece. Marzal is skilled in numerous mediums and picks and chooses between them according to the demands of each piece. He uses acrylic paints, pastels, markers, spray paint, ink washes, oil, and graphite, all of which can be applied to a wide range of surfaces.

Born in Spain, Marzal studied at the Instituto Escuela de Artesanos, in Valencia, before going on to work as a graphic designer and photographer. His clients include Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, and Forbes. He currently lives in New York City and is a full-time artist.
