Sal Marino is a connoisseur of fun. Known as the "Founder of the Funism Art Movement", Marino's unique vision of the world is puncutated by a wry and sometimes cryptic observation of everyday life. He is a humorist, an artist, a photographer, a musician, a writer, a poet, a businessman, a lover, a father, an observer, a participant and most importantly, a 'Funist'.
Marino's nostalgic look at sexual yearnings, unfulfilled love, brushes with fame and the not so ordinary oddities of reality are the mechanism by which the reader is drawn to the reflective surface of his subject matter. We all can see a bit of ourselves in Marino's stories, whether it is from the point of view of the protagonist or the many diverse personalities (some recognizable) who are represented in his book Guy Talk, Girl Talk. The author allows a glimpse through the window of his experiences, and subsequently our own, suggesting that we each have reflective, sometimes dark and perhaps equally amusing stories to tell.
Marino's current 'works in progress' include "Net.Date" - a hillarious window on the world of middle age cyber dating, and "The Marriage Myth" - a humorous account of the pitfalls of modern marriage.
