Mia Martí is a versatile artist: she works with different supports and techniques that make her a multidisciplinary creator. His painting is fused with acrylics and inks; makes engraving; photographs are involved ... In the same way, he works on different supports such as woods, fabrics or papers. Techniques and supports that Mia Martí delicately dissolves and thanks to her skill she is able to hide, behind harmonic compositions full of harmony, a complex elaboration.

In her paintings, shapes and lines dissolve in such a way that you don't know where some end and the others begin, her bright and balanced colors, the way she distributes them, the transparencies, the compositional game ... these are elements that Mia Martí uses. to express themselves with their own language. And yet it is she herself who says:


"We can talk about technique, composition, shapes and colors, we can talk about creative processes and references. Everything can be curious, interesting, but not relevant or necessary because, despite everything, they will not properly explain my painting. the means to achieve an end, the pictorial experience of the painter and also of the viewer ".

 

"Own language" that happens so as not to incorporate figurative elements, nor does he just name his works to avoid determining factors in the viewer's gaze. The theme of Mia Martí's work is the same painting, it aims to provide the viewer with an experiential experience, a space for dialogue between work and viewer away from the closest reality to enter a different reality, art. Mia Martí achieves, thanks to her craft and a lot of "cooking", a work with a very personal stamp that the viewer can always identify.
