MARINEL SHEU - 'INFUSED BY LIGHT AND COMFORT’

10 Nov – 1 Dec 2022

"Marinel Sheu aka CEO of VIBE ( born 1996 ) is an Albanian artist based in Dublin, He is known for his signature sunflower artworks or the cinematic evening sunset. You cannot help but notice his unique colour palette and details that make every artwork special.
His portfolio is big and ever-expanding. Marinel creates at a consistent and steady pace. He makes sure to stop and smell the flowers but never gets distracted for too long. He tells me in his own words:
""I like to experiment, I like to play around. My inner child makes it almost impossible for me to experience art-block!""
Marinel's art has been acknowledged and appreciated globally as he has worked for many worldwide corporations and has been published by important art magazines. Among them, we can mention: 'It's Nice That', Arsham Studios, Disney, Gucci, Netflix and Vice.
When asked for his source of inspiration, he finds it hard to give a definitive answer. And if you take a look at any of his works, you can see why. Marinel doesn't try to recreate what has previously been done, nor does he try to portray larger-than-life concepts. On the contrary, he captures everyday life, through his own unique lens.
""I believe that my life outside of my work, ultimately defines my art!"" he tells me. And it is evident. The dreamy sunsets have their roots in the artist's Mediterranean origins (originally from southern Albania) and are enhanced and enriched with pieces from his European travels.
As for where his art style is directed, we can see hints of retro-futurism. Heavy influence from Japanese art and aesthetics, and as always, serene ambience. This contrasting duo is a powerful statement. Marinel holds on to the sense of nostalgia, for it gives his work identity and background to build upon. Yet he is not afraid to tap into the future, portray it, manifest it, and be an acting force in creating it. Respectful towards tradition, but always pushing the envelope."
