Marcelo Añón is recognized for his graphic depictions of urban architecture. While some artists choose to focus on soft, natural landscapes, Añón prefers to showcase worlds of steel, brick, and glass. He continually pushes his practice forward through experimentation and personal expansion that has resulted in expressive works that are visually arresting.
He 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. Añón’s use of perspective invites the viewer into his drawings, and then upon deeper inspection, explore the maze of repeating shapes, patterns and geometry.
When asked if he enjoys art making, he nods and gives a thumbs-up. He replied equally enthusiastically about the feelings he has while making art with another thumbs-up and replied, “Good. Yes. Draw.”
Añón’s artwork has been featured in Arts of Life’s 20th Anniversary Platinum Print Collection, studio merchandise, and has been projected on the facade of Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.
