Javier Marín is an exceptional sculptor, truly one of the greatest artists of our era. The massive bronze nudes of Javier Marín embrace all the vitality of Renaissance sculpture, capture the mystery of Michelangelo's Bound Slaves, the drama of Rodin's Gates of Hell and the extraordinary dignity of Mayan and Aztec portraiture. His work is a unique and dynamic blend of Western European and Mexican culture.
Marín was born in Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico in 1962. He studied at San Carlos, the National Academy of Art, in Mexico City and has exhibited widely throughout Mexico with solo exhibitions at the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, MARCO in Monterrey, and the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. He has been featured in over thirty solo exhibitions and participated in more than one hundred international exhibitions. http://javiermarin.com.mx/
