Pretty Abstract

Miami artist Marcelo Holzinger finds inspiration in breaking down limitations and letting his art take the lead.

Brickell-based artist Marcelo Holzinger considers himself a lucky man. “I feel very fortunate to be able to make a living as an artist,” he admits. Holzinger spent years working in graphic and interior design before making the transition to full-time painter, where he’s enjoyed considerable success. Holzinger’s paintings tend toward the abstract — free movements of color and shape on canvas. “When I’m in the flow of a new art piece, I feel as though the work is moving itself,” he says. “I let my natural instincts take over as the work moves through its own process — I let the work happen.” Check out his work in the Wynwood Art District, or at the Miami Home Design Show in September, where Holzinger is being featured as one of the Star Designers/Artists;
