It begins in the world of jewelery by her mother at a young age.
Juanjo Garcia Martin is a jeweler of Spanish art. He lives and works in Malaga.
His artistic approach combines different disciplines that he has been practicing indiscriminately from an early age:
painting, music and art jewelry.
A self-taught artist, who is not afraid of experimentation, especially in his search for materials, whose diversity is impressive. His latest collection of unique pieces, entitled "Mares de Asfalto" explores the theme of the urban environment:
the city, of course, but also the worlds it houses, its buildings, streets, towers, inhabitants,
all make endless layers of colors and parallels stories,
crossed by the lines and volumes characteristic of urban architecture.
If I was ignorant,
I would be happy.
If the church
would be holy I would be the pope
if the pope was holy, I would be a church.
I would pray “Our Father”, would cure cancer.
If I was holy, the world would not change me.
Because I would change the world.”
