Yunior Marino
Cuba, 1976.

Sitio personal.

Yunior Marino completed his studies at the Instituto Superior de Artes de Cuba before moving to Miami. Marino, an artist in every sense of the word, works not only as a plastic artist but also as a musician and designer. Through all means, it seeks to investigate the universal questions of the cosmos, nature and time. Marino has captured the audience with the colorful details of his painting, the ethereal and changing melodies in his music and the candor in his photography.

He conceives the creation of his paintings as mantras, in the sense that through the repetition of the same action his mind is completely empty and the act of painting becomes a way of meditation. Marino explains that the timing and process of creating a work are the core of what the painting means, stating: “The way they were made is what they are.” Marino frames the art of creation as simply fixing what we have destroyed once. He actively uses his past and the concept of the passing of time with universality to heal this way his present and future. For Yunior Marino, the art of creating has no restrictions on insular “being,” but it encompasses the larger universe. His paintings represent what we are, and not only what we are as a race but conceiving the “We” as a whole. He has worked in different countries and has exhibited extensively in Canada, the United States, Mexico and Cuba.
