Mark Durazo is a San Diego artist who paints myriad landscape scenes of our beautiful local landscape. San Diego natives will recognize the familiar dramatic drop-offs of Sunset Cliffs, or the spray of waves off of Point Loma. Those unfamiliar with San Diego will be captivated by his oceanic landscapes, peaceful and playful. What makes Durazo unique is his ability to capture the golden sunlight that graces Southern California. His application of paint is light and airy, heavy when it needs to be, but overall energized, lending his canvases an overall atmospheric, ethereal quality. When he isn't painting, Durazo makes films. He writes and directs original works on a variety of topics.
