Luis Marzoratti was born in Mar del Plata, Argentina, a descendent of Italian immigrants. He has a great love of his land and the Argentine people. Marzoratti brought his passion and ideals to his art and worked as a political artist. Much of his work incorporates imagery that is symbolic to the struggles of the Argentine people.
In his latest series Los Códigos del Sol depicts a beautiful beach with the blue sea and an sun umbrella. Behind the umbrella are silhouettes of people. For Marzoratti this represents the need to hide your thoughts and opinions that differ from the political over-culture. Each peaceful and relaxing scene belays the undercurrents that lay beneath the veneer.
In his El Mar Cercano series, The Ceibo which is the national flower of Argentina is the main focal point. The Ceibo is a familiar symbol that appears to float through his work along with other cultural icons like pottery and sculptural artifacts. The Ceibo represents hope and the 'best' of Argentina and offers a reminder of the natural beauty of his country and the pride of its people.
Luis will be represented by Blue Contemporary on Stand L19 in the Large Hall.
