On June 3, 1990, Fernandez presented an original work, "The Spirit of the Summit" to President and Mrs. Gorbachev of the USSR, as a tribute to "a man that has changed the world!". At the conclusion of the Desert Storm conflict, he presented works to United States Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Colin Powell, General H. Norman Schwarzkopf and His Royal Highness Prince Khalid bin Sultan Abdul Azis of Saudi Arabia.

Although his best know work is in realistic images of nature, Mario's mastery continues to experiment with other subjects and techniques. The realistic, surrealistic, and nature art forms developed by Fernandez have achieved international prominence.
