Born in Colombia, Marin first received formal art training in the 1980s at the ‘Bellas Artes’ Institute in Manizales, Colombia. He continued to study sculpture at the Luccio Petraglia School of Art in Bogota, where he honed his sculptural proficiency in bronze and steel. Later, South American travel exposed him to the rich melting pot of cultural influences that further formed his approaches to color and texture.
Marin now works in South Florida, where his work has been featured in design magazines, gallery shows, prestigious art fairs, and private commissions continue to proliferate.
Relatively inexpensive cost encourages and allows collectors to purchase multiple sculptures at a time. Marin's intension is to create an interaction and engagement between multiple figures, a dynamic composition that can be arranged and rearranged as desired. The shadows thrown off by the glossy little men and women, who alternately squat, leap, lunge, stretch, and perform arabesques, further energize the walls against which they are installed, so that the spatial sum of the parts far exceeds the individual sculptural components.
