This work was probably made at Mario's south Florida studio in Fort Lauderdale. His style was primarily a form known as geometric design with illusions. Growing up in New York City Mario served in the U. Military and afterwards studied at the Graduate School of Visual Arts and the University of Mexico. His art was inspired by Salvador Dali.This fine painting is typical of his extraordinary craftsmanship and precision where fantasy is superbly blended with realism. Individual figures and lines were painted in acrylic and subsequently applied to the canvas. The canvas measures 35" x 35" and is displayed in the original silver metal frame measuring 36 1/2" x 36 1/2". Other than a few light surface scratches, this painting is in very good condition.
