Mario Merchan, Artist

Susan Donnellan

Mario Merchan is a self-taught artist specializing in oils on canvas. His work is very much reflective of his own upbringing, as well as the raw human emotion and experiences of others.
Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador and raised by his grandparents, Mario draws much of his inspiration from childhood memories – mornings riding to school on the back of his grandfather’s bicycle, playing soccer barefoot on the streets with neighborhood children until dinnertime, wandering the woods picking mangos with friends on weekends, and countless hours drawing and painting on his patio with his eldest cousin, Eduardo.
