J.J. Marino (Napoli, Italy - )


J. J. Marino was born in Napoli, Italy on the year of 1978. In his artworks, people are en route to a location unbeknownst to the audience. The small figures may all seem very similar, but every figure in his paintings has their own set of colors, personality, and energy; thus he precisely captures the real world. When one observes a group of people, they are often seen as a unit, without any particularity of individuals. However, a group of people is ultimately a sum of various human beings. The gestures of the crowds seen in Marino’s paintings are cheerful and lively as if they are dancing across; the destination they approach is a happy one.
