Born in 1966 in Barcelona, Spain. Iconoclast, irreverent, ironic, virtuous, imaginative, detailed, all these adjectives would suit to speak of Mario Soria (Barcelona, 1966). A deep connoisseur of the pictorial Western tradition and its techniques, he uses them to subvert them with his particular sense of humor.His works are a mixture between American pop art and the European tradition (from the Gothic to the Baroque), which he likes to call “interstellar pop surrealism”. After his participation in the prestigious TEFAF fair in Mastricht in 1998 his work has been successfully received in many 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 forms part of important public and private collections worldwide. Mario Soria is considered one of the most consolidated and followed Spanish artists of his generation.
The works by Salustiano (Seville) have been exhibited in museums, galleries and international art faires all over the world for several years.
