In his work we find beauty in its perfect form visible through the feminine forms in which he depicts women, in the multicultural faces, in exotic creatures that capture and take us where our mind is willing to travel; when we shift our gaze in another direction, Murillo submerges us into a sub aquatic dream: harmonious colors and textures are rooted in his original fishes, unique species.

About the Artist
Although he considers himself to be a self taught artist, he is grateful to the artist Francisco Alvarado who was his mentor during more than three years at the school for Art and Decoration, ESEMPI, in San Jose Costa Rica. Before then he had already experimented with techniques such as acrylic, pastel painting, collages, ink, watercolor, charcoal, etc. At the school he expanded his artistic knowledge from history of Art, painting, installations of "Recycling Art" to psychology, photography and decoration, specializing in oil painting.
