Portraits by Marcos Raya

 Marcos Raya

 

Marcos Raya counts the works of the Mexican muralists Siquieros, Rivera and Orozco; the absurdist ideas of Dada and Surrealism; American Pop Art; the Chicago Imagist School; and literature and cinematography among the many influences on his artwork. He considers his work to be non-academic, drawing inspiration from the streets, hospitals, factories and life. 

 

A resident of Chicago since 1964, Marcos received a full scholarship from the University of Illinois to attend Windsor Mountain, a prestigious private school in Lenox, Massachusetts. In his artist statement, Marcos considers “fragments of a ceremonial circumscribing of space” to be evident in his works through an “extension of his own personal space, breaking boundaries..

  1. I showed Marcos Raya’s work in Chicago and know him personally. I was the executive director of Latino Arts Coalition and Gallery. At that time his studio was on 19th St in Pilsen……I am now a collector and work with several L.A. Latin American Art Galleries. Tell him to get in touch. I am now living between Malibu and Palm Springs. Would love to hear from him….He looks good and Happy and that is quite the plus……..Respectfully…Deanna Bertoncini

    Would love to see his newest work and get a feel for his pricing.
