About Artist: Manuel Marin was born in 1942 in Cieza, Murcia, Spain. Aged 10 years old he developed a passion for bull fighting, and at 16 fought his first bull fight. He fought with many of the great bullfighters of that period including: Chicuelo Segundo, Pedras Montero, as well as Miguel Mateo (‘Miguelin), Jamie Ostos and Manuel Benitez, better known as ‘El Cordobes’. When he was 20 he travelled to London and worked in an art gallery where he met the famous British sculptor, Henry Moore who employed Manuel Marin as his assistant in making bronze sculptures. In 1964 he moved to New York where he worked as an Art restorer in the Mallorca Brothers’ Gallery. He then decided to open his own gallery called, ‘The American Indian Art Gallery’, where one of his clients was Andy Warhol, who became a great friend, as did William Kooning, Jean Michel Basquiat, the artist Robert Indiana, and Haring Keltan amongst others. In1969 Marin became interested in mobiles as sculpture, and it quickly became obvious that he had discovered his ‘raison d’etre’ and his ‘metier’. In 1970 he had his first exhibition at the Allan Brown Gallery in Scarsdale, New York, and subsequently exhibited all over the world, and became famous for his distinctive, brightly coloured mobiles.
