Cuban energy and sunshine are present in each and every brush stroke by Maria Arango. What do you want to do when you see her works? I want to dance!
Maria Arango was born in Havana, Cuba. At the age of four her parents moved the family to the United States to escape the communist island. They settled in Miami, Florida and South Florida has remained her home.
Since childhood art has been a constant in her life. Her parents saw her artistic potential and always supported and encouraged her to pursue her love of drawing. There was never any doubt as to what she would choose to do as an adult. In 1987 she received her Associate of Arts degree in Commercial Art but her true passion has always been portraiture and fine art.
Her work has been published and most recently her work was published in the book “BEATLE’S ART – Fantastic New Artwork of The Fab Four”. She has raised tens of thousands of dollars
for non profits and charities with her artwork.
While celebrity portraits and sports artwork is what she is best known for she is not limited to them. She brings to her work all of the color and vibrancy of South Florida, especially Miami.
Her work is unmistakable and her unique style sets her work apart. Even with her busy schedule she still finds time to continue her philanthropic work.
While portraiture is her first love her recent works are influenced
and inspired by her love of South Florida. Her work will take you to this tropical exciting place, that is Florida or it will bring Florida to you.
