Marti seems convinced that ‘the mystery’ is before us, and he shows to us. His creative discoveries tell us in some way, that ‘we can start from here something that will take us
very far. “When he wants is an irreverent educated and / or make beautiful things and / or show you the beauty of what others call ‘ugly’. The pleasure he experiences is
perceived and feels almost like an act of generosity that invites you to attend. Marti is one of those artists who in their artistic approach is much of the message. He is the surprise ” (text by Alvaro Pichó)
