I got this feature adding Chow Chow dog hairs (my pet) to figures and spirituality with paper aluminum. I used black pigment with an acrylic medium, because I wanted to apply lowlights matte or dull to dramatic effect to the subject. This piece has no frame and is signed at the back.

William Marquina was born in Mérida, Venezuela in 1967. Attracted by the works of great masters such as Picasso and Leonardo, at the age of 11 he participated in an outdoor Sunday painting workshop. After graduating in visual arts from the Universidad de Los Andes, he studied a master's degree in philosophy, followed by an unfinished doctorate, and was a short-term visual arts professor at the same university. From now on, William will pursue his passion for art by experimenting with different themes, techniques, styles and media. Disappointed by the unstable situation in his country, he emigrated to the city of Quito in 2019 where he currently lives and produces his works in the Oskan-huera painting studio, cloistered during the pandemic of 2020 and 2021, he will insist on his series Perceptions William's production has been experimentally versatile and challenges us with series characterized by the desire to search, study and complement the archaic and contemporary. His series are notable: Brillo, Picasso Copy, Matisse Copy, Da Vinci Copy and Aperceptions. In the latter, he highlights us in painting, the subjective complexity in the world of perceptions. He recently exhibited at the International Painting at Casal Català Quito, 2021, and at the Ecuadorian Painting Exhibition, Quito Mayor's Office, 2019. Important individuals were: Cartographies of the Terrain and Trans-Terrain, Mérida 2012; Watch out. Camino y Límites, 2007 and Esencias, 2007. Awarded the First Prize of Arts for University Students, in 2001.
