Art Madrid'23 – Mario Soria
about Mario Soria
Iconoclastic, irreverent, ironic, virtuous, imaginative, detailed, all these adjectives would serve to talk about Mario Soria (Barcelona, 1966). Deeply knowledgeable about the Western pictorial tradition and its techniques, he uses them to subvert them with his particular sense of humour. 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. His work is part of important public and private collections internationally. For his career, he is considered one of the most consolidated and followed Spanish artists of his generation. His works are a mix between American pop art and the European tradition (from Gothic to Baroque), which he likes to call “interstellar pop surrealism”. Among his recognized influences are Velázquez, Bosch or Moebius.
