John Marin Biography

John Marin’s (b. 1991, Philippines) works deal with traditions of spirituality, reflections on existence and the individual’s place in the cosmos, and questions about the self, collective, and identities. His paintings are known for their monochromatic colour scheme — producing dramatic effect at times while in others create a mood that invites reflection and contemplation. Marin has exhibited extensively in Manila, Philippines and in Taipei, Taiwan, with six solo shows to date. In 2015, Marin held a solo show at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines, and recent curated shows include Colorum at the Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center (2016) and Uncommon Views at Pinto Art Museum (2013). Marin is a three-time finalist of the Metrobank Art and Design Excellence Award.
