Mario Torero

San Diego
MARIO TORERO is an ‘artivist,’ visionary, and urban shaman with exhibitions and public works featured locally, in different cities throughout the U.S. and abroad including Chicano Park in San Diego, Toledo, Ohio, and works in Czechoslovakia, Peru, Japan, Costa Rica, and Barcelona.

Mario's work arises from his desires for a creative and colorful environment that encompasses and involves the participation of the ‘community.’ Be it artists or doctors, the process of public art includes the participation of all in the creation of art.

Because of the connection to his country of origin, Mario leads other artivists on tours to Peru. His body of work consists of socially motivated public artworks that have evolved into a master plan concept that continues to evolve to the tune of humanity’s dream.
