Us and them

Us and Them

Piece description from the artist

During my daily commutes in San Francisco, I would observe and try to capture candid moments. These moments often portray pedestrians drifting into their own state of consciousness. I often wondered what they were thinking and dreaming of.

About Marcos Shih

Los Angeles, CA

Marcos was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He received a B.A. in fine art from the State University of New York at Geneseo in 2001. Marcos also earned an additional B.F.A. in animation and visual effects from the Academy of Art University in 2008, where he served as a part-time faculty member.

Shih's work entails visualizing urban scenes that impart a cinematic experience. An avid follower of current and past film directors, he often dreams of compositions that evoke an alternate reality. Marcos tries to capture an emotional disparity and solitude that is often felt in an urban environment.

Working in oils allows him to layer realism and richness onto each painting. Using a traditional and contemporary approach, his technique involves "wet-on-wet": applications. Shih currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
