February 13th 2016 Artwalk Artists

Annie's Art & Frame
From the artist:  My name is Gabriel, I typically work in drawing and painting. My mediums are charcoals on wood and paper. I have always been inspired by artists growing up, the whole process and build of a painting has always sparked curiosity. I use art to express my moods or just thoughts that come to mind intuitively and in some indirect way. Some drawings describe pain and some are just random.. I just draw. Freestyle drawing is something I really love to do. I like feeling the moment, to just create what you feel or dont feel at all. I make a few marks and embrace the whole process.

Gabriel Marquez is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in charcoals and mixed media fabric painting. Other mediums include photography, sculpture and graphic design but with more focus on illustration. Gabriel graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a BFA in Studio Art in 2012. He studied painting and graphic design. Gabriel Marquez was born in El Paso, Texas and joined the artist community of Seattle in 2014 and has since been collectively engaged in the arts.
