Mario Andrés Colón

Lecturer in Art

Mario Andrés Colón is a representational painter, draftsman, illustrator, and curator. His work is narrative in nature and deals with contemporary issues dealing with relationships, group dynamics, and symbolic allegories. 

Colón’s teaching philosophy focuses on the development of traditional drawing, painting, and sculpture skills. This approach equips the student with a working toolbox of skills so that they can better convey complex ideas and perspectives within their personal studio practice.

Colón received his M.F.A. from Laguna College of Art and Design.
