Mario Angel’s early propensity for drawing and painting led him to pursue a fine arts degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Medellin, Colombia. Here he cultivated his skills in drawing and learned watercolour and oil painting.
Prior to migrating to Canada he exhibited in his home town. The move to Canada interrupted his career as an artist but not his interest in being an artist or the development of his talent.
Once he was able to focus on his art, Mario was easily accepted to participate in several juried exhibits including some at public galleries such as the Art Gallery of Peel and Art Gallery of Mississauga. On four occasions he’s won the People’s Choice Award.
