Super Mario - Art Heals!

Mario Holder is a Barbadian visual artist who credits Art as integral in helping him heal!


It all began in 2014 when he started painting and drawing as a form of therapy after a spinal cord injury left him partially paralyzed from the neck down.



“I found painting gave me a sense of purpose and allowed me the time and space to heal”.

Mario paints a variety of subjects mainly using acrylics on canvas and his work is inspired by nature and the practice of being mindful of shapes and colors.



“I hope to inspire others to take the time to see the beauty that’s right in front of us, we just have to pay attention ”.



SEE HIM IN DECEMBER AT FIRST WEDNESDAYS!
