Mario Sánchez Nevado (Barcelona, 1985) is a Spanish freelance Illustrator and Art Director focused in developing artworks and packagings for music bands and publishing houses all over the world, from his studio Aégis Illustration.

His distinctive surreal signature on aesthetics, and his caustic approach on storytelling, has granted him a worldwide recognition of his career. He has joined forces with clients of the size of Adobe, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Harlequin or Hachette. Nevado is also one of the managers of the international artistic collective Hysterical Minds. He has written several on-line workshops for PSD Tuts about digital imaging production and has been a speaker in some major events about digital art in London, Madrid , the Creative Pro Show in Rome and the Behance Portfolio Review in the Create Now gig held by Adobe. His opus has travelled worldwide, from Spain to the U.S. or La Habana (Cuba) in exhibitions like Creatives Rising, that itinerated among others, from the MoMA and Guggenheim museums in New York. His artistic labor has been recognized by the Master Award on the digital art annual Exposé by two consecutive years, and recently, he was featured in Adobe Photoshop's 25th Anniversary TV spot that was premiered on the 2015 Oscar Academy Awards and gathered a Pencil D&AD Award, Three Cannes Festival Lions and an Emmy nomination.

With a solid style, his conceptual art works on bringing an emotional impact to the viewer, creating tales about universal ideas and feelings easy to relate to. His usage of colors is the key of creating atmospheres that are catchy but ambiguous at the same time, meanwhile a critique to society and politics is usually found between the lines, as well as the roles we develop as emotional human beings in an historical era dominated by superficiality. His striking collection is deeply woven with bold narratives that allow the viewer to create their own vision of what they are seeing. Part magical storyteller, and part sober messenger of society's ills, Mario's works begs for a deeper consideration of the world around us.
