Roberto Marquez (born 1959) is a painter originally from Mexico. He was born in Mexico City and spent his later childhood in Guadalajara,[1] where he graduated from Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente.[2] He later moved to Arizona, and then to New York.[1] His paintings incorporate dreamlike images from literature, Mexican history, and himself. His work is known for its "literary allusions and visual metaphors" and for its frequent references to music.[2]

Marquez's art has been collected and exhibited in numerous shows in galleries and museums, including the Tucson Museum of Art, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey,[2] Hirshhorn Museum,[3] and Mexican Cultural Institute of Washington.[4] His work is the subject of a 2002 book by Edward Lucie-Smith.[2][5]
