Guy Marino.

Italian born.

 

Guy Marino creates art that centers around contradictions. Often fusing original photography with cutting edge digital enhancement techniques, Marino relies on duality to form a distinct platform for his art. His large-scale archival digital prints, mounted behind plexiglass or printed on aluminum substrate, feature a wide array of human subjects that come to resemble enchanted islands. In some works, compositionally split at the mid-line, a diaphanous growth of orbs, scratches, crumbles and crystal formations overlay half of each subject. In other artworks, elements of three faces – often of diverse ethnicities – are combined into one. Fresh and organic meets digital and sci-fi, nature meets culture, art meets life. Inspired by the historical art and architecture of his European homeland – medieval streets, Renaissance frescoes, vaulted ceilings and ancient ruins – Marino’s work is at once hyper-contemporary and reminiscent of times past.

 

Guy is a graduate of the Scuola Superiore D’Arte Applicata All’Industria del Castello Sforzesco in Milano, Italy.
