Armando Mariño is a Cuban artist. He works with oil and watercolour and is known for his strong, vibrant and intense palette. He is the holder of many awards including the Segundo Premio, Salón Nacional de Arte contemporáneo Cubano. He lives and works in New York.
He claims that the most important lesson learned from these Cuban artists was the awareness of contemporary art theories and concepts. Much of his work reflects social unrest, protests and rebellion. He uses bold, vibrant colours, in multiple layers to build up his oil or watercolour works. "Armando Marino filled his paintings around the end of the 1990s with corrosive historical fictions in which Cuban and European-Western art history crash into each other."
