Mario Ayala’s art is fun, colorful, and pleasing to the eye. This is simply surface appeal, however, because under the fun, dreamy aesthetics of his works there is a deeper message. Ayala’s artwork is a portrayal of American society through an artist’s eyes. They say the best artwork is controversial, and I’d say Mario’s art creeps sneakily into that category. He is very tactful about his expression of view on the U.S. yet extremely honest through his symbolism. Whether you agree with the statement the artist is making or not, there is no denying this is pure talent.
