Javier Martin has developed a very characteristic way of work by combining paintings and photographs. He has created a very particular language by using fashionable trends as elements to be added to his work. Self learner since he was 7, he won the Caja madrid contest for young artists in 1994.
He can boast of a refined and versatile technique, from the creation of sculptures made of recyclable materials to his Louis Vuitton rifles collection made of handbags fabrics and clasps. The artist, after becoming in designer, decides to use new technologies in his art pieces providing as a result a series of collections mixing digital appearance and traditional techniques. His work has been supported by Baltus Collection and can be seen in selected showrooms located in Los Angeles, Cannes, Miami or Chicago.
He is known as an artist who covers the eyes of all his models in his Blindness Collection, as a way to show the intention to make us see beyond the pictures.
He has exposed his art in remarkable exhibitions such as Estampa Madrid, Arte Lisboa, Maison & Objet Paris o Art Basel Miami.
