Mario Soria, who is deeply knowledgeable about Western pictorial tradition and its techniques, uses them to subvert them with his particular sense of humour. His works are a mix between American pop art and European tradition, which he likes to call ""interstellar pop surrealism."" Among his recognized influences are Velázquez, Bosco or Moebius.
Soria observes everything that crosses his gaze with a hunter's attitude. It can transform iconic images and everyday objects into something new and fascinating.
After his participation in the prestigious TEFAF fair in Maastricht in 1998, his work has been successfully received in numerous European cities, as well as in Asia and America. He has exhibited in Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Miami, London, Taipei, Tokyo, Istanbul, Vienna, Geneva and Utrecht, among others. Recently we have been able to see a large sample of his work in the Solo Show ""Entelequias"", in the CEART of Fuenlabrada. His work is part of important public and private collections internationally. Because of his career, he is considered one of the most established and followed Spanish artists of his generation.
