Hello, my name is Marilyn Vicente, I use a variety of different mediums like watercolor, acrylic paint, printmaking, charcoal, spray paint and micron pens. I create intricate, abstract designs. Most of my artwork has been featured throughout the DFW metroplex in places such as TVAA Downtown Gallery, Janette Kennedy Gallery, 500x Gallery, The Basement Gallery, Art Is Life Studio, Latino Culture Center and Kettle Art Gallery. I also have been a featured artist for KERA's Art and Seek.
On October 2014 I was selected for the One Meter At a Time: A Temporary Public Art Project, a partnership between The Office Of Cultural Affairs and The Dallas Police Department. Myself and 7 other artists were selected to paint the parking meters each located in Oak Cliff, Deep Ellum and Downtown. My meters are located in Deep Ellum on Main street, Henry street and Commerce street. The meters are on temporary public display. In 2015 I was selected to display my custom vinyl toy in Vancouver, Canada for Vinyl Fantasy V: Aliens & Alienation at Metropolis Comics and Toys. Along with displaying in a different country I had the chance to display my vinyl toys in a custom toy show called Idol Hands at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Through Art Hunger, an non-profit organization created by artists to help other artists. In 2014 I was selected to display with Vinyl Thoughts Nation at their annual Vinyl Thoughts Art Show 5 MAD*L Makers. I also got the opportunity to exhibit at the Bottleneck Art Gallery for the show UNMASKED with Vinyl Thoughts in Brooklyn, New York. I also displayed at ATAMA & Company for Show Me The Dunny 4 at Strangeway's Dallas and with ATAMA & Company.
I have donated some of my works to raise money for charitable causes and fundraisers like Summer Colors benefiting Texas Scottish Rite Hospital For Children, Twitter Art Exhibit benefiting Molly Olly's Wishes in London, United Kingdom, Foster Pride in New York, New York and Home-Start Moss in Moss, Norway. Art Conspiracy's Art Con 11, Art Con X and Art Con 8, Kettle Art Gallery's "For the Love of Kettle, The Human Rights Campaign and No Tie Dinner & Desserts in Dallas.
