Sculptures by Ancizar Marin
I was born in Colombia South America in 1968. as a teenager I was not the best student at all., I had to do things my way and only my way, however when I was introduced into art by one of my uncles who is a painter things started to change. I was caught by the passion of art and started studying at the Bellas Artes Institute of Art in Manizales, Colombia, in 1982 where all suddenly my father started getting compliments for my good behavior and achievements.
I then Went on to specialize in sculpting at the Luccio Petraglia School of Art in Bogota , Colombia in 1985 where well known artists like liliany and Fernando Botero once attended classes. I studied sculpture in bronze and steel and worked in conjuction with other artists making pieces for the european market to keep the school running which at that time was having financial problems.
It was at the Petraglia school of art where the great idea of joining forces with the already famous Liliany started. and two or three months later we opened up our own foundry in Bogota. over the las 15 years I continue to study art. I have studied in Spain, Italy, Venezuela and the United States. This mixture of cultures has helped me realize that there are multiple tastes when it comes to shapes and colors in art. thats why I sought a need to inprovise and work at the creation and development of different styles, designs and techniques such as Bronze and Chrome, Bronze and Glass and my latest technique Bronze and Resin. I will continue to experiment with multiple textures and techniques for as long as I can live.
