The importance of being Martoz

Martoz believes in the importance of adventure to test his skills. He likes to organize unorganized things, like the time when, with a friend illustrator, he sailed on the Tiber by dinghy, from Todi to Lazio, eating canned food and sleeping in a wet tent. Martoz believes in the importance of never feeling arrived to study but also to find inspiration from the world; fresh courage is always needed. He was born in Assisi in 1990, but grew up in Rome, where he attended for six years the School of Comics, then the IED, where he majored in illustration. Thanks to the meeting with Riccardo Mannelli, he found and developed his personal style of drawing, his voice.

He works with a small company of independent productions in the Torpignattara area. Martoz attended  the Festival of Lucca with presentations and performances, including a live painting session for Sky Atlantic, and exhibited his work at Galerie Paris Glénat. Here he understood that drawing, as well as being the best way he can communicate with, had also become his profession. A job where sincerity is very important, the courage to tell in a clear, honest way.

One of the most beautiful things he has done is Top-onomastics: a poster art project. Together with a friend , Martoz attacked the characters' faces on the names of the streets. The idea was to put faces to the names that people see every day, from saints to heroes to poets.
