Dominican born, Sócrates Márquez brings his works to life by exploring with acrylics, oils, household items and found objects. Making use of bold string-map markings, combined with images and his signature paint-splatter technique, Sócrates artworks invite the viewers to a journey of discovery and self-interpretation within the intentional chaos he creates.
He lives in Harlem, New York having moved to the United States in 1998.
A highly educated and successful businessman in New York’s financial district, Sócrates had a desire to paint the most difficult imagery to master – abstract expressionism. The very fine line between a brilliant abstract artist and a completely failed effort is best illustrated in the
film about Jackson Pollack, entitled “Pollack”. Sócrates has mastered this format as well.
