Mario Dávalos is a photographer exploring the intersections of contemporary art and conservation.
Trained as a painter,Mario crafts images that use contemporary aesthetics to promote the protection of our environment and discover beauty in the last wild things on Earth.
Mario's work employs contemporary aesthetics and his training as a painter, not only in the use of color and space, but also from strong pictorial influences, from Paul Cézanne, J.M.W. Turner, Helen Frankenthaler to Robert Motherwell.
His work aims to potentiate the man-nature connection through simple and fragile images, and instead of denouncing the pressure over natural resources or documenting scientific phenomenons or behaviours, create images about the last, truly wild places on Earth.
