“The weight of being an artist is heavy.” — Mario Andres Robinson.
Mario Andres Robinson is a serious artist. He thinks deeply about what art means and its power to impact people’s lives.
“The real power of art is the ability to galvanize and organize all those pigments and materials and pour a soul into it,” he said.
Robinson not only pours soul into his realistic paintings, but he also uses his work to touch the souls of his viewers.
“I don’t want you to leave and say, ‘Ah that was okay,'” Robinson said. “I want you to have more, not less…If we’re going to have a moment. Let’s have a moment.”
