Mariano is a fascinating multidisciplinary artist. He is a painter, designer, and muralist; he obtained his Bachelor of Arts from Universidad Complutense in Madrid; he studied engraving and printing at Espinosa de los Monteros in Segovia, Spain; cinematography at Universidad de Valladolid; and glass painting at the National Center for Glass Manufacturing in San Ildefonso, Segovia. Up until 2006 he was an instructor at the Segovia School of Art, but currently he has devoted all his time to his creations. He skillfully combines his painting and design skills with his ceramic murals and sandblasted glass windows. His diversity enables him to design and adorn both indoor and outdoor architectural spaces. His works have a nostalgic feel to them but are exceptionally modern as he blends a variety of techniques from his endless skill set into each work he creates.
