Carlos Alberto Mari
I was born in Buenos Aires Argentina in 1960 and my passion for art and oil painting began when I was in primary school, where I would stay at the library reading about art after class, but it was not until the age of 12 that I began experimenting with form and colour.
I became a chemical engineer and took a break from art, and It was not until 2000 when I took on oil painting again as a hobby and focusing on marine art and seascapes.
I migrated to Australia in 2006 and now I have settled down in Pakenham, where I set up my studio with my wife.
I’m inspired by classical old masters, like Leonardo DaVinci and impressionists such as Monet, My paintings now reflect traditional rural Argentine live and its history.
Since 2020 I am a member of the Cardinia Art Society and MAVA alongside my wife Lida.
