Urban Crossing / Urbano Travesía: the Art of Hugo Mariño
A look through the eyes of an urban artist
visiting from Caracas, Venezuela

Caracas, capital and largest city in Venezuela,
holds over 3 million inhabitants within a 167 mile radius.
Home of the great “Libertador” of the Americas Simón Bolívar, Caracas is a leading South American city for contemporary Latin American culture, music, and street art.

Inspired by the unique colors, movement, and vibrations of urban city dwelling in Caracas, Hugo reflects on his modern life through color, form, graffiti and other urban artistic expressions.
