Mariano, known by his tag BNS, is a Buenos Aires-born, Brooklyn-based street artist. He draws inspiration from the energy of the city context in which he has always lived, be it Buenos Aires, New York or more recently Barcelona. Through his murals in urban spaces he is continuously leaving a vibrant imprint in the public space, letting his work flow on, as well as off, the streets.
BNS pulls iconic images from popular culture into a frenzied burst of color and dry humor, from bespoke-suited Stormtroopers to a tatted-out Audrey Hepburn. He combines aerosol paint, acrylic, silkscreen, ink and photography into his non-stationary work. BNS’ expressive style originates from his study of urban scenes and from the graffiti and street art culture; his works are characterized by the addition of numerous layers of material where he combines a broad range of media and techniques including spray paint, acrylic, silkscreen, stencil, transfers, ink, and photography.
His work appears in a wide range of locations throughout the U.S., Spain, Australia, Russia and Argentina. In recent years his work has also been shown at some of the most prestigious global art fairs including SCOPE in Miami, New York and Basel, Switzerland as well as Art Miami, Art New York and Art Wynwood.
