Biography of Joan Martí Aragonés: (Barcelona, 1936 - 2009)
Joan Martí Aragonés, a Catalan painter, was born in Barcelona during the fratricidal Spanish Civil War. At the age of thirteen, he was admitted as an apprentice in the studio of the painter Nolasc Valls. From the beginning of his career, Joan Martí showed a clear preference for figurative art. He was determined to become a painter and he entered in Barcelona’s Escuela de Bellas Artes. At the end of his studies, he obtained a scholarship in order to further his studies in Italy and America.
When he was very young, at the age of twenty-one, he held his first individual exhibition. Six years later, after a deep reflection upon his painting, he held his second exhibition, this time in the Jaimes Gallery, located in the famous Paseo de Gracia, in Barcelona. It was a big success. Since then, his pictorial work continued through exhibitions in the best galleries in Spain and the world.
From the beginning, Marti felt magnetized by the human figure and the scenes of everyday life. He was also interested by nature and urban landscapes.
He has exhibited his works both in Europe and America. Some of his graphic works are in the USA and in Japan.
