Marquez, Socrates

Dominican born, Socrates Marquez brings his work to life by exploring with acrylics, oils, household items and found objects. Making use of bold string-mop markings, combined with images and his signature paint-splatter technique, Socrates artworks invite the viewers to a journey of discovery and self-interpretations within the intentional chaos he creates.  Socrates lives in Harlem, New York having moved to the United States in 1988. He is primarily self-taught, and has studied under John A. Parks at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Marquez received the prestigious “Solo Award” at the 2013 Art Expo in New York and has been selected by Art Business News for their Top Emerging Artists in 2014.
