Marcos Anziani (b. 1984) is an artist born in the Dominican Republic, raised in the Bronx, and now living and working in Connecticut. His paintings combine lyrical abstraction with expressionism in large, gestural strokes of color. The dazzling energy of the color is, as the artist says, curbed through context and line. Protean images of people and objects emerge from this technique, producing energetic paintings that dance over the canvas.
The mostly warm colors help balance and subdue the often chaotic forms. Taking influence from luminaries such as Willem de Kooning, Joan Miro and Jean Michel Basquiat, Anziani moves forward with visual motifs borrowed from street and naive art while working in continuity with the tradition of abstract expressionism.
Anziani’s work has appeared in multiple solo and group exhibitions around the world. He has shown in galleries in Moscow, New York City, and Miami. In 2022, he signed on for exclusive representation through Avant Gallery.
