Meet Mario

Mario is an award-winning, cross-disciplinary artist, teacher and curator who works in Hertfordshire and London. His art practice includes drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, installation, sound, video, book arts and performance.

Since graduating in 2012 with a Masters in Art and Media Practice from the University of Westminster, he has exhibited his art across the UK and around the world. His work is held in private collections in the UK, the Netherlands, Malta, Canada, the USA and Australia.

Mario is also a qualified teacher and has enjoyed teaching since 2011. Passionate about arts education and his students, he has delivered a variety of short courses and workshops that cover a wide selection of art-making subjects and techniques.

To date he has taught at City Lit, The Affordable Art Fair, Watford Museum, The Hundred Years Gallery and OPEN Ealing.  Mario’s latest venture is an endeavour to bring artists and art-lovers together to learn and create in a stimulating, inspiring and supportive space – welcome to The Fine Art Room.
