Marcelo Viquez

Marcelo Viquez  has been on my links since I started this blog and I really love his work, especially, like me, he doesn’t seem to be able to paint to well either. It doesn’t stop him from creating great art though. If you haven’t had a the chance to take a look yet I would urge you to do so. I honestly don’t know much about him except that he was born in Montevideo in Uruguay in 1971, which makes him a couple of years younger than me.

His paintings are exactly the type of ‘Art’ which I find my self questioning ‘is it art or not?’. Then think what the heck it works, it’s fresh, it makes me smile and it presents the world in a new light. I love his use of colour, his playfulness together with pathos and the fact he uses his dog as a muse and of course that through the clever use of imagery and symbolism he has been able to create art from sketching.
