Javier Marín was born in 1962 in Uruapan, Michoacán.
The human as a whole is the center around which Javier Marín’s artwork revolves; he shows living human beings, palpitating, with bodies that present themselves with dignity, proud yet hurt and decomposed. Not fragile, but strengthened individuals. On their skin and flesh they carry the marks and scars of their own existence: a continuous confrontation of apparent opposites, a de- and reconstruction of fragments. His choices of materials as well as his working process, which leaves evident marks on each piece, are substantial elements of the way he conceptualizes his art.
