Colors filled out the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum with the exhibition of the Guayaquil artist Marcos Ribadeneira, held on Wednesday, June 17.
“I am happy to pass on my art, which is something that I love. I rejoice when this work has the public acceptance,” said Marcos about the Neo Pop Art Exhibition, consisting of 19 paintings, some made for the occasion and others that belong to private collections, such as Constance Baez´s, Miss Ecuador 2013, and Cecilia Niemes, who attended the evening.
The name of the exhibition, NeoPopArt, says Marcos, is to make known “how a special kind of work, derived from pop art, consists of icons, images, and personalities, which is seen from the inner world of painting and color I have.”
“I like the juxtaposition of elements, styles, this is a good sample of the artist,” said Marcel Pazos, friend of Marcos Ribadeneira. With the musical intervention of Richie Swan, special guests, friends and relatives of the Guayaquil artist enjoyed the event, which also featured the participation of contemporary dancers.
Since his childhood the painter from Guayaquil, Marco Ribadeneira, showed penchant for painting, when drawing characters from television series or films of the era.
Engineer in Sales by profession, Marcos is an autodictada, never went to courses of paintings, or had references in his family, but when growing up was perfecting his art to define his style.
Pop Contemporary Art is how defines his art, his main influence is Andy Warhol ( American painter, creator of Pop Art ). He has done portrait with this style to Ismael Cala, presenter of CNN in Spanish and also to Constanza Baéz, Miss Ecuador 2013.
A feature of his paintings are the curved strokes as well “as the wide range of colours and vibration that transmit power to the Viewer. Find seemingly hidden details and complementary colors according to the reflection of light are another quality present in my work”, said the painter.
His works have been exhibited in Las Peñas, Casa de la Cultura and the MAAC.
