Raul Marrero: Just Getting Started

The Tropic Art Gallery is proud to exhibit “Just Getting Started,” the debut exhibition of an assorted variety of artworks by Raul Marrero.

Raul arrived in Key West in 2011 by way of Ketchikan, Alaska, and has rarely left the island since. He’s worked in, out, on, and underwater for most of his time in the Keys, but now that he’s firmly on land working as a projectionist at Tropic Cinema, he’s been taking advantage of the stability to douse paper, parchment, and canvas with ink, watercolor, and acrylic. 

Raul is perpetually a student, and always willing to learn, so he’s more than willing to listen to any critiques, or advice, about art, the presentation, or anything else in general. Find him on Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook at @idrinkanddraw, or email

We are proud to feature Florida Keys artists in our Tropic Art Gallery. If you’re interested in exhibiting your work at the Tropic, please email or give us a call at 305-396-4944.
