Martin Lapalma was born in 1976 in Argentina. He has come a long way before fully committing himself to the painting. He won a Martin Fierro and an ATVC prize as a documentary film maker, owned a Jazz Club for seven years, and was a Radio dj at his own Radio show.
His paintings create an organic decalogue of his profound relationship with the image.
“Martin Lapalma makes of the color a manifest, his characters and inscriptions, are a strike to passivity. Expressiveness is his most visceral state.” 1
