With over 25 years of artistic work, he has successfully entered into Mexico’s artistic scene and has become a representative of figurative international sculpture.
The sculptures of Jorge Marín reflect in bronze the intrinsic strength and force that emanates from its creation and permits him to construct dynamic bodies, full of movement, which challenge gravity and rotate in space supported on one point. His work represents the struggle between the coldness of bronze and the diverse emotions that his subject’s evocate: the perfect balance of the equilibrists, and his winged figures has become his particular seal. Another notable trait in his work is the mask, an attempt to depersonalize his sculptures and become another medium of expression of a body that contains universal symbols in itself.
He currently exhibits “Wings of a City” in Mexico City, which opened in 2010, and another of his exhibits, “The Body as a Landscape”, has been shown in museums and galleries throughout Europe since 2011, including Paris, Madrid, Lisbon, Istanbul, Berlin, Brussels Budapest, Timisoara, and will be shown in St Petersburg and Brussels .
