Originally from Austria, Marco Riha has started his long creative journey in Sri Lanka in the early nineties.
The self-taught artist 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 of sorts.
Over the years the artist has been experimenting with different mixed mediums. During his early symbolic phase he mixed water colors with crayons and oils. In his later abstract works and his latest socio-political pieces he mixes inks with oils and spray paint
