Born in Colombia, Marin first received formal art training in the 1980s at the Bellas Artes Institute in Manizales Colombia. He continued to study sculpture at the Luccio Petraglia School of Art in Bogota, where he honed his sculptural proficiency in bronze and steel. Later, South American travel exposed him to the rich melting pot of cultural experiences that further informed his approaches to color and texture. Marin works now in south Florida, where his work has been featured in design magazines, gallery shows, and prestigious art fairs. And private commissions continue to proliferate.
