Artist of the moment….Manuel Marin

Manuel Marin was born in Cieza, Spain in the yea 1942. I like to think of Marin’s work as very similar to Alexander Calder’s mobile works. Marin worked in very large public sized formats.

Marin’s first love was bullfighting. He loved the sport and began fighting by himself when he was sixteen. At the age of 20 he moved to London, England to work in a gallery.¬†At this gallery Marin was able to meet Henry Moore, the world famous sculptor already profiled here, who hired Marin as an assistant.

Marin passed away in 2007.

Price range information: Most non public sized works range from four to twenty thousand dollars.

This artist created some very fun and exciting shapes which are great to see in three dimensions.
