Welcome to the website of award-winning visual artist,
Marcos Dimas

Marcos Dimas combines Pre-Columbian Taino symbols with contemporary modes of abstraction and figuration to create a fusion between past and present ways of seeing. His poetic symbol laden drawings and prints are based on transcriptions of common sights and sounds, popular music and dreams. As such, Dimas’ work falls into the Caribbean tradition of surrealist abstraction fostered by Wilfredo Lam.
