Mariano Vargas wants to create beauty in the combination of bodies, clothing, theatrical decor, and other sophisticated details. His Madonnas are like "tableaux vivants," models involving their fantasies in a world that links the past, postmodernism and Renaissance. All these beautiful women portrayed are allegorized at the same time with the following themes: religion and the profane, transcendence and pleasure, magic and the quotidian.
Mariano Vargas lives and works in Spain.
