Inspired by the works of Caravaggio, Michelangelo, and Leonardo Da Vinci, Agredano focuses on the visual complexity of his scenes, placing much of his emphasis on the perfection of his human forms. The artist’s luminous use of pigment is strikingly bold, infusing his paintings with a dynamic vitality as he captures the heroic struggles and confidence of his subjects. Agredano works in acrylic paints on a variety of surfaces including board, canvas and paper, pairing his skilled sense of line and drawing with a rich depth of color.

Born in Mexico City and now living in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, Mario Agredano has exhibited throughout Mexico, Italy, and the United States. Self-taught as a painter and a passionate historical scholar, he found his creative spirit fueled by his travels through Italy, experiencing ancient artifacts and culture while visiting Rome, Florence and Pompeii.
