Martí Roca Balcells
Martí Roca Balcells (Barcelona, 1994)
Graduated as a graphic designer at the BAU University, he combines this profession with that of a painter. Both activities complement each other: the design as conceptual attitude and painting as a more free and intuitive process. He is currently working at the design studio La Casa de Carlota, in the creative process where professionals, students and artists with Down syndrome and autism collaborate.
Martí’s work fuses faces, bodies, plants and organic forms, exploring the human figure through the stain by means of brushstrokes. Raw and flat, he is creating a dialogue between wild and rational, a naïve and expressionist game that flees from aesthetic conventionalism.
Permanent artist of Artevistas art gallery in Barcelona
