Mario Vidal Lozano
Mario Vidal Lozano was born in Salta, Argentina on April 17, 1957. In 1977 he got his title of Professor of Painting and Sculpture and began to exhibit his work. To date he has won more than 40 awards. He has made trips to the pre-Columbian and colonial cultures of Peru and Bolivia, especially visiting Machu Pichu and Tiwanaku, and Northwestern Argentina, Catamarca, Tucumán, Salta and Jujuy. All of which influences his work……
Working with natural materials collected from the highlands and mountains of Salta, Jujuy and Catamarca, his art was simple yet full of symbols and signs that make an artist “universal”.
Mario slowly adapted his ‘language’ and began working with other elements, producing textures that create light and shadow………his paintings becoming contemplation in a leisurely and peaceful haven for the viewer.
