Tin Sun Wall Art by Mexican Artist Mario Rodriguez

Mario has been Making tin suns for over twenty years. A native of Guadalajara Mexico, he established himself in a nearby pueblo where he uses a combination of plasma and torch for cutting the intricate patterns. He is proud to say his designs are all created by him. And even adds that he will not produce designs by competitors with the inference that he would like the same respect in return.

The suns designs are varied. The one that first caught our attention was the multiple patterns that occur with the effect of lighting. For example: A first look shows a regular sun with plasma cut patterns; upon lighting it you can see a beautiful tree pattern in the background. Mario is passionate about his work and even trained his son his techniques to pass his artistic talents to the next generation. He can even make custom designs for restaurants and special designs.
