Guam - All this week we will feature some of the people who will be participating in the Guam Visitors Bureau's signature cultural event - the Guam Micronesia Island Fair. We introduce you here to artist Mark Murer.

Mosaic and abstract art was something the Mangilao resident stumbled upon while working for a glass company a while back. "One day taking a lunch break, wind came and cracked into a hundred pieces. I came up with an idea off it," he said.

It's an idea he's went with for over 35 years. I'm sure many of you have seen his amazing work displayed at various establishments on island and now, you can view and even purchase the fruits of his labor at this year's Guam Micronesia Island Fair. According to Murer, inspiration for his art comes easy, saying, "Guam has a lot of neat sites...folk legends...scenic sites. Its pretty neat."

Murer says that depending on the size, it can take anywhere between 1-2 months to complete the piece, noting that it isn't an easy process.

This will be Murer's 8th appearance at the GMIF and it's something he always looks forward to. He hopes for a great turnout this weekend and extends an invitation to all.

The 27th Annual Guam Micronesia Island Fair kicks off on Friday, April 25th and concludes on Sunday, April 27th at the Governor Joseph Flores Park in Tumon.
