Mario Sughi is an Italian illustrator, cartoonist and historian, living and working in Dublin. He is a member of the IGI (Illustrators Guild of Ireland) and AI (Associazione Illustratori Italiani) and the author of nerosunero.
The people in Mario Sughi's vivid illustrations seem to be living a technicolour, minimalist lifestyle. Evocative at times of David Hockney's work, these are images of consuming couples, sporty young people and languid moments. The leisure class is under Sughi's microscope and gets served back up to us in many different flavours. Sughi's style is saucy and leaves an undercurrent of mystery in the seemingly simple narrative under all those layers of colour.” written by MoCo Loco Art Magazine, Canada, Nov. 2009
