Ancizar Marin (Colombia, 1968)

Received formal art training at the Fine Arts Institute in Manizales (1968) and continued to study sculpture at the Luccio Petraglia School of Art in Bogotá (1982), specializing in bronze and steel but also working with chrome, volcano rock, wood, resin, and fiberglass. His many travels through South American exposed him to the rich melting pot of cultural influences that further formed his approaches to color and texture. Now, he creates in South Florida, where his work has been featured in design magazines, gallery shows, and prestigious art fairs like Art Basel Miami, as well as included in commercial and private collections.

His style includes dynamic groupings that can be arranged and rearranged at will, like his famous fiberglass climbers. The shadows that are thrown off by the glossy little men and women, who alternately squat, leap, lunge, stretch and perform arabesques, energize the wall against which they are installed so that the spatial sum of the parts far exceeds the individual sculptural components. So, through this particular work, he has expressed his intention of luring viewers to open a dialogue “of love, admiration, knowledge and feelings for art”, in his words. And this is apparently in all of his work, as many people are intrigued and delighted by his fiberglass army of climbers.
