Mauro Martin was born in Pinerolo, North-West Italy. After graduating at the local art school he studied architecture at the Polytechnic in Turin. He studied with masters Beppe De Valle and Raffaele Ponte Corvo. his work covers several aspects of visual art and the artist expressed himself by the use of different media, such as painting, sculpture, photography and film-making. He applies the “less is more” minimalist principle to all his works, which are characterized by a compositional essentiality and structural rigour as well as being enhanced by the constant use of a rule of classical origin, largely adopted during the Renaissance period – the Golden section.
