There are no upcoming events
Felix Murillo was born in San Jose on 17thDecember, 1971. Although he considers himself to be a self taught artist, he is grateful to the artist Francisco Alvarado who has been his mentor during more than three years at the school for Art and Decoration, ESEMPI, in San Jose Costa Rica.
Before then he had already experimented with techniques such as acrylic, pastel painting, collages, ink, watercolor, charcoal, etc. At the school he expanded his artistic knowledge from history of Art, painting, installations of ‘Recycling Art’ to psychology, photography and decoration, specializing in oil painting.
In his long artistic trajectory, Murillo has worked within different fields including jewellery and artistic make up.
At a very early age, Murillo felt a deep attraction towards art. He was always drawn to colors, forms and textures, although he did not know then that he would end up dedicating his life to it. Nowadays, he is a valued artist and his work is purchased by different private collectors all over the world.
Today, we can find an art world full of color, emotions, textures and dreams. In his work we find beauty in its perfect form visible through the female forms, in the multicultural faces, in exotic creatures that capture and take us where our mind is willing to travel; when we shift our gaze in another direction, Murillo submerges us into a marine dream: harmonious colors and textures are rooted in his energetic creations. His original fish are his personal signature.
Even when our critical eyes are satisfied with observing this immense talent his works still suprise us almost overwhelming our imagination with his fun montages, crazy collages full of passion that will make us reflect on those little things that make life great.
