Statement : 

Originally from Austria, Marco Riha has started his  long creative  journey  in Sri Lanka in the early nineties. The self-taught artist he kept on painting and travelling for some years until he found in Mexico his creative home base. The visual arts fascinate Riha, like the possibility of screaming without making a sound. Art has given him soul searching opportunities and the realisation of being on an artistic quest.

Over the years the artist has been experimenting with different mixed mediums. During his early symbolic phase he mixed water colors with crayons and had a long fascinatiin with oils. In his current abstract works, that include some socio-political pieces, he mixes inks with oils and spray paint.

Bob Marley's song 'One Love, One Heart' came to mind once I finished this painting in July 2021. It represents to me the ultimate love hymn to all of mankind. I can only wish this painting releases the same high vibration of unity consciousness - love through creativity, love through art - I am sure, it's no coincidence, there is Art in HeART:)
