Mario Soria’s Eccentric Hyper-Real Paintings Of Pop Culture Icons

SoriaPainting4SoriaPainting3 SoriaPainting7

Spanish artist Mario Soria creates stunning collage-esque paintings of iconic American images and figures such as Andy Warhol, Woody Allen, Marlene Dietrich, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, John F. Kennedy, and Abraham Lincoln. His portraits are hyper-realistic, but the seemingly random array of objects and contexts he places these figures within lends the work some eccentricity, a sense that is heightened by his use of embellished canvases and the simulated 3D effect of some of these protrusions.
