See more from Dani Marti
Dani Marti is a Spanish-Australian contemporary visual artist based between Scotland and Australia. He is a trained painter and though he refers to these works as paintings they seem more like sculptures to me. Using rope as his rope he creates large-scale woven art. He describes his tactile abstract works as portraits of different people and compare it to the sentiment of a grandmother knitting something for her grandchildren.
What is so fascinating about his body of work is the contemporization of a craft that has existed since the Hellenistic times. Beside his use of industrial materials and tools, the concept and craftsmanship behind these creations seems to carry many of the same values as those since the beginning of time.
