The work of Nacho Martín Silva articulates around a painting that springs from concerns linked to notions such as the fragmentary, simulation and representation or likeliness. Using the History of Art, that of humankind and the creative process itself as axes, one of Martín Silva’s main concerns is how to face the underlying subject matter through painting, thus giving rise to a polysemic body of work, which takes different directions with regard to its formalisation.

Nacho Martín Silva has a Fine Arts degree from the Complutense University of Madrid, city in which he lives and works. Among his most recent solo projects, Il futuro non è ciò che era, curated by Tolo Cañellas, at Box 27 (Palma), and Tirar del hilo hasta quedar ciego at JosédelaFuente (Santander) in 2017, and El Gran Estudio, curated by Ángel Calvo Ulloa, at the Centro de Arte de Alcobendas (Madrid) in 2016 stand out. He has taken part in group shows at museums, galleries and international institutions such as Galerie Sobering in París, Espacio Odeón in Bogotá and OTR Espacio de Arte in Madrid, among others. His work has been shown at ARTBO (Bogotá) and ARCO Madrid’s last editions. He has been awarded with Pilar Juncosa and Sotheby’s Prize to Artistic Creation in 2017, and his work is subject of study in Juan Francisco Rueda’s publication, Nacho Martín Silva, edited by Nocapaper in 2016.
