Studio Member since 2015

b.1993

Marcelo Añón is known for his graphic depictions of urban architecture. While some artists choose to focus on soft, natural landscapes, Anon prefers to showcase worlds of steel, brick, and glass.

“I can spend all day drawing. I can make things. Buildings, houses, bridges, cityscapes, perspectives. Skyscrapers; tall and short. Drawing freehand. I like lines. I like drawing lines.”

Añón often works with marker, boldly laying down saturated primary colors that he tempers with layers of graphite and colored pencil. The contrast of black ink anchors his brightly hued color fields. Occasionally, Anon will use a computer to digitally manipulate his original, hand-rendered artwork. Anon’s use of perspective invites the viewer into his drawings, and then upon deeper inspection, explore the maze of repeating shapes, patterns and geometry.

“Pens, sharpies, markers, pencils, paper. I make outlines. I draw lines and fill them in. Careful drawing with exact marks. Concentrating. Sometimes I do the same thing over and over. I can work for a long time. Good focus. I like drawing best.”

Añón’s artwork has been featured on the Arts of Life studio merchandise, including the 2016 calendar.
