Jorge Marín (born September 22, 1963) is a Mexican sculptor and painter. He has been an active figure in the contemporary art world for the last 25 years. He began to sculpt ceramic in the early 1980s. Bronze has been his preferred material for the last ten years. His work often depicts horses, centaurs, garudas, children, madonnas, acrobats, along with elements such as spheres, masks, wings, arrows, boats and scales. These concepts are consistent with recurring themes such as reflection and balance.
Installed disembodied wings throughout Mexico City, Dallas, and Denver to encourage greater collaboration and respect between the United States and Mexico.
