The Power of Patterns

¡Hola! This is Mario, I’m a pattern artist and teacher based in Madrid. I learned all I know about drawing and composition in Architecture School and a Master in Graphic Design. Then I started exploring on my own and I found my true passion: pattern art.

My art style is mostly abstract and geometric with contrasting elements, but I also get inspired from nature elements that I love to simplify. Check out my pattern tutorials portfolio to see my work.

When I’m not creating patterns you can find me fangirling over Christina Aguilera, Drag Race and pop music performances.

Hand drawn patterns and attention to detail are my way to cope with this fast-paced and impersonal world.

Pattern Tutorials for Self Care

As a person who suffers from anxiety, I realized art can be very therapeutic. I use pattern tutorials to help you practice self-care and make creativity an important part of your life, maybe a part you forgot was there.

I create drawing guides on my Etsy shop and Patreon every month to help you with the hardest part – getting started. It’s also an awesome way to support my art career!

I share my creative process and tons of pattern videos and tutorials on Instagram and Youtube.

I also run a newsletter where I send you challenge prompts to draw, free tutorials to get your creative juices flowing and updates on my projects. There’s a free pattern workbook for new subscribers!
