Mark Garro 'Blues of the World'
MARK GARRO'S "Blues of the World" is his 7th solo show at Copro Gallery. Garro’s work presents a visual map of the human condition and portrays apocalyptic vignettes sprinkled with a dash of hope. Garro's unique style can be described as Technical Fusion combining Hyper-Realism and Trompe-l’oeil. Opposing themes are depicted through his signature motif of “Above and Below” featuring water, women and his recurring characters such as "The Pupil" and is also a nod to his dedication to music and his saxophones.
