Del Mar resident and artist Marcos Armitaje recently won the coveted “Museum of the Living Artist Collectors Award” at the San Diego Art Institute’s 51st International Juried Exhibition for his work titled “LaSelva.”

The award was presented to Armitaje, along with a check for $1,000, at the SDAI Exhibition Opening Gala on April 16 in Balboa Park.

“This award is a humbling validation that the work I produce is a message from the Earth that is acceptable to its inhabitants,” Armitaje said. His work represents the 2D painting of infrared light passing through natural earth crystals and is painted on canvas.
