Major Articles Featuring ARC Living Master™ Mario Robinson

I have for several years now considered Mario Robinson to be one of the most talented living artists, who also happens to be a well-recognized ARC Living Master™.

His paintings capture much of the emotional essence of black America, and he does so with a singular directness which compels empathy in his viewers for the sadness, joy, or psychic torment in nearly every one of his subjects. If you ever have the chance to experience a grouping of his works together, you’re likely to see any number of art loving visitors mesmerized by one powerful composition after another….riveted by this artist's rare and exceptional talent for subtle nuanced dramatic intensity in scenes from everyday life. The simpler his composition the more complex the emotions.

Apparently a growing following for his work has been mounting, recently culminating in major articles in The Watercolor Artist Magazine and a second recent interview by Didi Menendez, the editor of Poets and Artists Magazine

--ARC Chairman, Fred Ross

The Watercolor Artist magazine, which features the work of Mario Robinson is on newsstands now. Over the years, Mr. Robinson has taken part in several interviews. This particular article is unique, whereas it breaks down his work day and documents his process with corresponding photographs. Written by the features editor, Sarah A. Strickley, the result is an in-depth and well written article. To read an excerpt from Sarah's blog, with "5 Quick Tips from Mario Robinson", click here.
