Martin was born in 1964, in Buenos Aires.
He joined the Sociology university in 1982, right during the Malvinas war. Many students strongly react to the military Junta. Martin will approach this subject in a series of war paintings.
From 1984, he worked at La Zona, a “refuge” and a meeting point for Buenos Aires Artists in the 80's.
In 1991, he travels to Paris and participate to the exhibition and book « La couleur de l’eau », at the Pavillon de l’eau of Paris.
In 2011, Martin co-exhibit his Art at southern America Artists "Hémisphère Sud”, organized by Montbéliard contemporary Art center, at Gérard Jacot’s Art school in Belfort.
The Artist was awarded by Moët & Chandon in 2012 at Contemporary International Art fair in Buenos Aires. His work is now part of various public collections, such as Museum of Contemporary Art (MACRO de Rosario) in Argentina, et MAC in Lima, Peru.
His Art book "Paralelo 42°" was published in 2017, regrouping all his sketches and paintings from Argentina Patagonia the previous years.
Martin’s paintings are full of gentleness and poetry. With ink and pigments on papers, he expresses lightness and evanescence. Very personal, the result is a spiritual skyline, spread with imaginative leaves and feathers. His paintings are like a sunset in “Le Petit Prince”, far away from home. Martin now lives and works in Paris.
