Kris Martin studied architecture and in about 2000 he switched to visual art. His now internationally recognised artistic oeuvre manifests itself in a variety of media including sculpture, installation, drawing, collage, photography and performance. Martin’s works often possess a playful element or subtle humour and make reference to conceptual art, as well as early art history and its religious roots. They are quite often oriented towards the physical properties of materials.
