Mario Tauchi is the artist and author of Mario Mandala Colouring Book published by Trolley, a mesmerising, joyful exploration of the artist's mandala drawings that give the opportunity for the viewer to colour in, a meditative and addictive experience. Mario is an artist based in Tokyo who creates his mandala drawings as live performance in a myriad of spaces and contexts, sometimes also set to music. His works are not pre-planned, they are spontaneous-created as he works. Mario has been strongly influenced by religious art, philosophy, and the psychedelic art of the 1960's. He often collaborates with musicians, poets and other artists in Japan and in Europe. Mario has had exhibitions in London, Hong Kong, Amsterdam and more than 15 shows in Japan.
