MARIO MARTÍN DEL CAMPO REVIEW
BY Ester Echeverría
One of the last artists of fantastic realism, whose works have a Renaissance rigor and an impressive perfection. “In addition to all that, he has a peculiarity, which is humor. He is a very confident and humorous angel. That child of his lets it out and it is within his works.” Echeverría added. The draftsman, painter, engraver, sculptor, designer and goldsmith, originally from Guadalajara, studied at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas de San Carlos, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and has had more than 50 solo exhibitions in his lifetime.
He has exhibited his work since 1977 in Europe, USA, Canada, Central and South America and Mexico.
He has designed scenery, costumes, masks and puppets for the operas Falstaff and Don Giovanni that have been performed at the Palacio de Bellas Artes theater.
Sculptural works through musical instruments, painting and other media made of shell, wood and ostrich eggs that form vehicles, fantastic animals and puppets.”
