|A Renaissance Man in the truest sense of the word, Mario Simic's
passion and love of art were manifested at an early age as he grew up
in his Yugoslavian motherland. His goal to become an active
contributor to the world of art led him to Paris, where during intense
studies, he was greatly influenced by the works of the past
masters. A lifelong dream to move to the United States was
realized, when he traveled to California in 1970 and fell in love with
the majestic Pacific coastline. First establishing residence in
the San Francisco Bay area, he later settled in Carmel-by-the
As he developed his unique painting style, Simic's focus remained on
the challenge of representing form and movement through the use of
color and dynamic brushstroke. His passion for the land and sea
became the impetus for his electric inspiration that opened the door to
a new era in artistic endeavor. Over the past quarter century, he
has continued to capture the essence of nature's awesome and timeless
sculpting of the coastal landscape.
From the heart of an artist,
Mario Simic states, "My intention is to create harmony, balance, energy
flow and to inspire. I hope that my paintings bring to the viewer
good feelings, leaving room for imagination and dreams."
boundless energy and enthusiasm, Simic befriended and attracted other
artists from around the world, as well as patrons, clients and
corporate collectors. He became the focus and catalyst for the
resurgence of artistic creative contribution that gave birth to his own
gallery. His first art gallery was received by the public with
great enthusiasm, and with explosive success, the one location in
Carmel quickly grew to four.
Among his most recent accomplishments, Simic was honored with the
silver award in a group show juried by collectors, artists, and patrons
of the arts in La Jolla, California. He has also been featured in
numerous magazine articles and is currently listed in Who's Who in the World and Who's Who of the Executives.
