Nacho Martín

Nacho Martín was born in 1953 in Ávila (Spain). In 1967,  at a very young age he traveled alone to Toulousse (France) to feed his curiosity and learn about art and sculptures in a very prominent market such as France is for art.


Upon his return to Madrid in 1971, he started working with Spanish sculptor Pablo Serrano, one of the greatest Spanish contemporary artists. You can see Pablo’s influence on Nacho’s work in his first sculptures. He quickly started making exhibitions in Madrid and began to gain traction and recognition for his work.


He has worked throughout his life in several pieces but he is widely know for his works on animals, specifically horses, bulls and birds. Nacho spends his days between his workshop, mountains and fields in Spain looking at the live animals in seach for inspiration and perfection. He has given the bull a leading role in art and sculpture, being able to transmit in a unique way the strength and energy of animals into art.


Nacho’s creativity has also allowed him to produce some of the best abstract and realistic art in Spain known to date. He prefers to work with bronce and wood.


In Spain, the Government has comissioned special art from Nacho to be permanently displayed in some of the most iconic cities in the country. Famous monuments are “The Bull of Ronda” in Málaga, or “The Bull Run of Alicante” in Valencia. Other pieces are in the Madrid’s and Valencia’s famous Bullfighting Museums on display.


His work today is mostly in Private collections in Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, United States, United Kingdom, Begium and the Netherlands. Although he makes exhibitions from time to time, his work rarely hits the secondary market as collectors are known to keep Nacho’s work. He personally works on every single piece with his own hands from start to finish in his workshop in Madrid.


Nacho is 70 years old and lives in the outskirts of Madrid (Spain). He is a curated artirst, a family man, a friend, a man of tradition, heritage and good values.
