Cycling Street Art by Mart

  • Posted by SHFT on March 17, 2014 in Art
  • Argentine artist Mart started painting in the streets of Buenos Aires in the 1990s, at the tender age of 12, becoming one of the first graffiti artists to paint entire trains. Since then his style has moved beyond just graffiti, and while the colour and command of the aerosol can remains, the compositions themselves have evolved:

    “His contemporary murals are predominantly figurative, and often appear to be whimsical in nature. He explores playful subjects like men on bicycles and pirates which look deceptively simple at first glance, however a closer look reveals his unique lines and his incredible skill with aerosol. In other pieces, he moves towards complete abstraction and creates jubilant studies of line and color. Much of his process is influenced by improvisation, with random swirls and shapes often becoming the composition themselves.”

    You can on the Argentine urban art site Graffitimundo, and enjoy more of his work on Flickr.
