AN INTRODUCTION BY THE PUBLICIST, DAWID SZMYD: Saravia's art is the closest you will get to a moving, true life story that can be found within each and every painting. Like Frida Kahlo and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, South American artist Saravia own, unique struggle and story has taught us so much about life. Painting his soul on canvas, laying brushstrokes of intense dedication and emotion, Saravia’s energy has been engraved deeply into every painting. Very few painters have ever lived such an intense life and achieved such greatness within to tell their story. His art makes a powerful investment for collectors and art lovers alike. -Dawid Szmyd, Circle of Ideas PR

He has also appeared in the popular program: “A Day in the Life of Mauricio Saravia”, which was produced by journalist Ignacio Suarez, who wrote a poem about him titled: "To Mauricio", which was later published in his book poetry. Saravia did his first art show in 1990. “I combine metaphysical with abstract and create a doorway to spiritual worlds. I moved away from the concepts that I had assimilated in art and began to paint, inspired by emotions that I had in my mind. The paintings became visions of inner worlds and I found that I could now focus much more on the act and the energy of creation itself." Saravia has done exhibits of his work in Denver, Colorado, Montevideo, Atlántida and Punta del Este. He has been sponsored by the U.S. Embassy, British Embassy, Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Tourism and by the former President of Uruguay, Dr. Luis Alberto Lacalle (who was also a guest to his 1993 art show). As a writer, Saravia published two books of poetry: “The Odd Lot” in 1991 and “Esencia” in 1998. “The Odd Lot” received a warm welcome from the press and it was introduced by the U.S. Embassy in the International Book Fair in 1991. The book was also presented by the Anglo-Cultural Institute the following year. The poems were taught to the Anglo's College students in English and in poetry appreciation classes. Saravia was one of the first poetry writers to embrace e-books and digital technology in South America: “The Odd Lot” was also made into visual a computer program in 1991 and was sold in important bookstores in the country, as well as in computer software stores. Saravia has been invited to do readings in New York, Denver, New Jersey Uruguay and he was invited to do a reading of his poetry from "Esencia" in a cultural event in Orange City Hall in 1998 in New Jersey. He also read his poetry from the “The Book of Whispers” in a television segment done by reporter Tom Mustin in KCNC-TV, CBS 4, as well as in High Schools in Denver. Saravia has just finished “The Book of Whispers, Part I and II”, which deals with surreal, sensual and metaphysical themes. "The poems are tinted by soft shadows of spiritual realms. The book is about passion and bringing the light of kindness into the world and in doing so, we could find the real us, that was waiting to be awakened." In 1997 Saravia worked with Uruguayan and Canadian theatre actress Patricia Ribeiro and started a television program called "Atmósfera" which interviewed local celebrities. The program aired in Channel 21 and was hosted by Ribeiro. In December 2001, Saravia’s fascination with the entertainment industry lead him to start a magazine called Artist Interviews: www.ArtistInterviews.com. The site received over 6 million hits and more than 486,000 readers. He published a printed “Collector’s Edition”, The magazine led Saravia to interview celebrities such as Ray Bradbury, Brian Herbert, Kevin J.
