He has also written and published his first book "La Mafia de la Basura" (2017), a book of stories, some of them autobiographical with a narrative style that falls into the experimental and irrational, and currently has two pending books pending publication, the first is called "Isla de Nieve", his first short novel, and "The theory of discovery", theoretical text about contemporary art.

The following themes have been exhibited: History of North American Art, Contemporary Art Theory, History of Marginal Art, History of Mexican Art. Drawing and painting (processes and techniques), and finally Theory and Musical improvisation. Finally it should be noted that Mauricio Gallardo is an artist who works at all times in a multidisciplinary way, so it would be difficult to condition his work to a single dissemination strategy or to a single discipline, both in his artistic work and in his work as a professional, the form of work is always the following, work with few elements, keep the initial simplicity, find clear ideas for the viewer, reduce equipment costs and increase the costs of script, argument and speech.
