Gallery Opening: Phases of the Heart

June 1 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Marlon “7oveChild” Davila

I am a painter inspired by the natural world’s beauty. I work primarily in oils on canvas, to create depth and luminosity I tend to use a flat brush to blend in colors, line and detail.
I am currently focused on the mystery and many phases of the hearts emotions. My body of work celebrates color, heritage love and passion. Through my work I hope to evoke a sense of wonder and awe and to invite the viewer to consider the complexity and many stages of the heart.

About 7ove Child:

The artist formerly known as Marlon Davila is a 1st Generation Guatemalan born in Princeton, NJ.  He studied his first love, fashion, at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Continuing his education in Fine Arts, he discovered his true love, painting, while attending Mercer County Community College. He graduated with honors and achieved the Jack Harris Memorial Scholarship for his Excellence in Fine Arts. He then attended Art Escape Italy in May 2017, a workshop with Hendrik Uldalen.

7oveChild’s work is influenced by surrealism, the bright vibrant colors of his Latin American culture, as well as the works of Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, and Picasso.

Infused in his art is his expression of present-day occurrences, Mayan ancestry, and fashion. Through 7oveChild’s art, he aims to open people’s eyes to another perspective on life and the world in which we live.
