Marc Saint-Martin

Freedom and Movement

As you will have understood, my name is Marc Saint-Martin. Born in Brittany in June 1951, I spent part of my childhood in Gabon in Libreville, which etymologically means the “city of free men”.

Despite classical studies (Latin, Greek), I had a long career in IT. In fact, I have devoted 40 years to it, a good part of which abroad for large groups or personal companies.

I became interested in music by practicing a few string instruments, my sensitivity going towards folk, blues and classical music. Finally, my interest in graphic arts was stimulated by art classes at school and my mother, who was a painter in her spare time.

After all these years, Freedom seems to me to be the most important value in the flow of life. In particular, it was his research that led me to pursue an international career. Thus, I had the pleasure of working in cities like Rome or Barcelona where the arts are part of everyday life.

I had the pleasure of working in cities like Rome or Barcelona where the arts are part of the everyday life. Like Claude Weisbuch, the discovery and the movement have been one of the components of my life.
Indeed, it has to include twenty moves and a few expatriations in bright and exotic countries. 

A decisive encounter with art

My meeting with  Claude Weisbuch was finally a revelation and a trigger. Indeed, his work imbued with humanism, freedom and movement is in the image of my ideal life. In addition, fans of his work largely include computer scientists, architects and many medical professions.

Should we see a sign there? For me there is nothing surprising, the precision and the rigor of this artist being a common point with my way of life.

Thus, I have many lithographs, engravings, etchings and copper plates.

Moreover, admitted into a “circle of intimates”, I had the good fortune to acquire some unique works. Indeed I have many “artist’s proofs” and also some BA T. (ready to print).

This passion has earned me the nickname “fou de W.” and an illustration by Philippe Migné.

My previous promotions

In order to make Claude Weisbuch known to as many people as possible, I organized an exhibition in the Gers at Eauze.

Today, I had other encounters with artists like Marie Claire d’Armagnac. Unfortunately the walls of my house are not enough to expose everything. So I want to highlight some carefully archived works!
