Mario García Torres
Mario García Torres (Mexico)
Born 1975 in Monclova, Mexico. Lives and works in Los Angeles.
While García Torres' media, themes, and modes of display may vary, his interventions in time and space are all marked by a cool-headed approach purged of any lyricism. Common to all his works is the desire to destabilize common perceptions of events past and present. Participating in the 2007 Venice Biennale and receiving The Cartier Award for Emerging International Artists are just two examples of his recent striking success.
