about the artist
Born Barcelona, Spain
Lives and works Cessnock, New South Wales
Dani Marti has become one of Australia’s most playful and genre-blurring artists, challenging audiences and critics alike with his unorthodox combination of hand-woven ‘canvases’, video portraiture and reflective, bespoke objects. Citing influences such as Lucio Fontana, Kazimir Malevich and Frank Stella, Marti is interested in the point where abstraction turns from something clean and clear, into something more flamboyant, something richer and more multifarious. Having held over 45 solo exhibitions in 25 years, Marti was honoured in 2022 with a mid-career survey at the Maitland Regional Art Gallery. Titled Oh Canola!, this impressive display was devoted to Marti’s show-stopping minimalism.
