Mart Aire is an urban artist from Buenos Aires regarded today as one important member of the first generation of graffiti art that arose in Argentina in the 1990’s.

Mart Aire ’s childhood and teenager’s street experiences with friends and family were the main triggers for his inclination and interest towards urban art. He and his friends were delinquents, so he realized that painting was a good way to stay away from that.

He started as a graffiti writer and began painting his name on buildings at the early age of 12. Since then, his self-thought artistic skills and talent have evolved and transformed into a truly creative way of expression.
