When we first brought you the works of Mario Soria, the Barcelona based artist was focusing on creating portraits that tell a different story up close. From a distance, his paintings of icons like Woody Allen and Albert Einstein appeared realistic, but upon closer inspection, revealed characters interacting with them in bizarre scenes, tagging their clothing with graffiti or enjoying a musical jubilee on top of their heads. Adding to the surreal quality of his work was his incorporation of found objects like smashed soda cans and legos, which he describes as a combination of still life and traditional painting. Since then, Soria has continued to incorporate objects into his works.
