"We are living in a context in which geometry is more necessary than ever. The search for order within all this excess of information, data, images or opinions. When even silence is not enough, the image exerts the greatest of its powers, establishing a necessary formal influence.Letting everything be in its place, in its proper place, the line being straighter than ever and the curve drawing the smoothest direction that can be accessed with the gaze". 

Rodrigo Martin

1986 Langreo, Spain

When he chose to study for the Bachelor of Arts, he began to have more direct contact with the world of art. He begins to be interested in painting and the different possibilities offered by drawing applied to his various techniques. Determined to continue his artistic training, in 2004 he entered the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Basque Country, where he specialized in intaglio engraving and graphic technique. This helped him to understand more in depth the drawing and the possibilities of the line.

 

In September 2008 he traveled to Barcelona to finish his studies in Fine Arts, with the idea of ​​improving his painting in a city that offered him new artistic and creative skills. He began to focus his style on abstract expressionism and study the whole tradition of abstract painting that the city offered and that undoubtedly influenced his work.

 

He was selected for several exhibitions in the north of Spain that allowed him to be known in different galleries and art circuits. At this time, he finished a Master in Artistic Creation and started a predoctoral work called "The Pictorial Unconscious: Origin and Impulse in the Creative Process of Abstraction".

 

In recent years he has participated in multiple collective exhibitions in different cities of Spain, Boston, London... and has also had individual exhibitions in different galleries in the country where his art has evolved more than ever until it is closer to a geometric abstraction that expands the limit of painting to the point of almost playing with sculpture.

 

He currently develops his pictorial work in Madrid, where he lives. “Cuadratura”, his most recent exhibition in the capital, gives way to the series of current paintings, which continue to explore all the possibilities that color and geometry can give to a canvas, a paper and even a wall (mural painting).
