MARTIN RON

Painting was, for Martin Ron, a way of living; something he has been doing since he was a child, that started when he was ten years old, as a game, with friends, at school, in the streets. Guided by a good taste for art, he continued with his passion for painting without even knowing that this would take him around the world, and that he would leave his art in the most important cities of the planet.

Martin is always looking for new ideas that defeat traditional art. That is why his work is full of new colours, combined styles and new concepts that make his art unique. Throughout his career he has been able to show something that cannot be imitated, with marks that can directly say who the author is.

Born in the province of Buenos Aires, the walls in the streets of Tres de Febrero were the starting point to think and develop his art, as it can be seen in Carlos Tevez ́ painting. And then, different neighbourhoods in the city of Buenos Aires, other provinces in Argentina, and countries like England, Spain, the USA, among others, have also seen his art.

Being a high-scale artist, he is constantly improving his style, and a world of fantasy can surprisingly appear in front of a passer-by in a giant piece of art on the wall of a high building. Martin paints elements of real life, and his paintings show that he knows the reality around him. His work includes well-known and popular celebrities- Sábato, “La Coca” Sarli, among others-, as well as nature and the effects of human beings on earth, in the belief that only men can change this situation. All around the world he has been leaving colourful pieces of work to change the dirty and grey images some places have. Once his art is complete on a wall of a city, that piece of work does not belong to him any longer, but rather, to society. A kind of dialogue and interaction starts, according to him, between people and his art, where freedom to interpret him is allowed and welcome.

He is considered to be one of the best ten muralists of the world. Martin does not stop, and he goes on constructing his own name, full of colour and life.
