Gallery Feature: Magno Arte
Magno Arte is the leading art gallery in El Salvador.
We represent emerging and established Contemporary painters such as Miguel Angel Ramirez (Salvadoran, b.1960), Federico Sandoval (Salvadoran), Humberto Rivas (Salvadoran), Cesar Menendez (Salvadoran, b.1954), and Regina Cortez (Salvadoran). These artists work in myriad styles including Contemporary Realism, Surrealism, Magical Realism, and Abstract Expressionism.
Some of our most impressive artists include Francisco Reyes (Salvadoran, b.1957), Paco Lopez (Salvadoran, b.1964), and Ernesto Mártir (Salvadoran, b.1978). Reyes is one of the most respected artists in El Salvador and Central America. Although he began as a watercolorist, Reyes is now known for his Minimalist landscape compositions, which are characterized by a virtuoso color palette and expressive brushstrokes.
Lopez is one of most renowned artists in Latin America. His work has been commissioned by many influential people from around the world, including former United States president, Bill Clinton, and former Salvadorian president, Antonio Saca. Lopez’s work is distinguished by powerful Surrealist and hyperrealist elements, and can be seen in collections in the United States, Spain, France, Brazil, El Salvador, Uruguay, and Costa Rica, among others.
Mártir is a prominent figure in the Fine Art world. He is best-known for the impressive realism in his landscape paintings, which are inspired by El Salvador’s many rivers, lakes, mountains, and tropical regions. Mártir paints the most significant elements of the natural world in the hopes of creating a peaceful emotional response in his viewers.
Magno Arte believes that art enhances the lives of all people; it is the reason why we are very selective with the artists we work with. Our purpose is to give something memorable and beautiful to the people of the world, and we are always looking to expand our horizons.
Our plan for the future is to have the ability to support more artists, and to represent artists that achieve worldwide recognition through our gallery. We hope to someday open more locations worldwide; currently we have two locations in El Salvador and we are opening our new location in Guatemala very soon. We have an online platform where our international clients can view and purchase works from our extensive selection of Contemporary Art, and we are more than happy to ship art anywhere in the world.
