Mario Yrisarry

Born 1933
Hometown Manila, Philippines
Lives and Works New York and Philippines

Inspired by the improvised rhythms and lyrical melodies of jazz music, Philippino-American artist Mario Yrisarry utilizes Prismacolor contrasts of hard and soft edges to create compositional rhythms and melodies on his own abstract expressionist canvases.


Working between the 1960s and 1970s, Yrisarry stopped painting and exhibiting in 1977. During that time, his work was exhibited regularly at Graham Gallery and O.K. Harris Works of Art as well as at the Park Place Gallery. His work has also been shown at the ICA in Boston, The Jewish Museum, the ICA in Philadelphia, and was featured in the 1970 Whitney Biennial. His work is part of many esteemed public and private institutions including The Whitney, The Joseph Hirschhorn Collection, and the Baltimore Museum of Art.
