Gabriel Marquez is an artist and designer living and working in Seattle. At the University of Texas, El Paso, Marquez double majored in Painting and Graphic Design, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Studio Art (2012). As an artist, Marquez’s work takes on a fluid approach. The artwork he creates is mostly free form. Marquez’s artwork explores themes of motion and stillness by using progressive contour lines in a pictorial realm that wanders between emptiness and fullness. The artwork although still, creates a continuous movement with the use of linear forms. Known for his intricate line drawings of fantastically surreal beings and dreamscapes, Marquez often works intuitively and allows the markings he creates to bring about the final outcome of the composition’s imagery.
Marquez was born in El Paso, TX to parents from Mexico. He has been an active member of the Seattle art community since 2014. Marquez has exhibited in multiple exhibitions with the Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) such as CoCA 24-hour Art Marathon for 4 years in a row, as well as Juan Alonso Studio, True Love Art Gallery, Axis, Art Exchange, and Shoreline City Hall among many others. In summer 2018, he was a featured artist in Seattle’s SODO Track muralist program, organized and produced by 4Culture. The SODO Track was curated by Gage Hamilton and led by Tamar Benzikry with support from the SODO Business Improvement Area (BIA).
