Please join us for a talk and meet artist Mario Andres Robinson, with a “behind the scenes” conversation. He will be discussing his interest in portraiture, landscapes and architecture. His aesthetic is a continuation of an aesthetic set forth by American masters of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Introduction by Liz Beard.
For those who can’t make it, this event will be recorded and posted on Salmagundi’s Youtube channel for viewing.
Mario Andres Robinson studied at the prestigious Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. In 2014, Robinson was 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).
Containing few references to modern life, Robinson’s work 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 Andres Robinson is a Signature Member of The Pastel Society of America, among others. 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.
Robinson is represented by Bernarducci Gallery in New York City.
