ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1986 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mart Aire’s primary artistic objective is to beautify public spaces by transforming the urban status quo. With this motivation, at the age of twelve, Aire took the streets to develop graffiti side by side with the first generation of street artists in Argentina.

The artist underwent a radical shift in his approach in 2007 where he began to create pictorial murals in his now idiosyncratic style, depicting explosions of colour, fine loose lines and playful settings, defiantly in spray paint – his work is illustrative, honed and compositionally defined, uncharacteristic for work typically using this medium.

His mural work unfurls like a threshold to another dimension. One of adventure, fantasy and magic, which aptly invoke feelings of joy, peace and freedom in the viewer. Aire’s style is free and fluid where he spontaneously injects messages within his work to further tantalise.

His career has seen Aire become an exemplar of Argentinian street art, availing him the opportunity to show his work internationally including at Mundiroff Galeria, Buenos Aires, The Friedge gallery, Washington DC, Newcastle Project Space, London, Causey Contemporary, New York, Galerie Issue, Paris and Neurotitan Gallery in Berlin.
