Mario Yrisarry sprayed and stenciled his canvases with acrylic paint or drew right on the support with Prismacolor, exploring non-traditional, non-brush methods of applying pigment during the 1960s and 70s in New York. Inspired by jazz music, his linear applications of paint with combinations of hard and soft edges within the same composition created lyrical abstractions while his canvas-filling patterns produced a rhythm and beat. Yrisarry exhibited regularly with Graham Gallery and O.K. Harris Works of Art as well as at the Park Place Gallery in New York. His work was included in many important exhibitions: Painting Without A Brush, Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, 1965; Whitney Biennial, New York, 1970; Painting and Sculpture Today, Indianapolis Museum of Art,1970; Using Walls, Jewish Museum, 1970; Spray, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1971; The Structure of Color, Whitney Museum, NY, 1971; Grids, Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, 1972. His artwork is in many private and public collections, including: Joseph Hirshhorn Collection, Washington, DC; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland; Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana; Larry Aldrich Museum, Ridgefield, Connecticut; Museum of Art, Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh; among others. Yrisarry was born in Manila, Philippines and studied at Queens College and Cooper Union in New York. He stopped painting and exhibiting in 1977. David Richard Gallery is now exhibiting and representing Yrisarry and his important artworks.
