Art Bytes | Mark Puigmarti “What Does a Blacksmith Do in the 21st Century?”
Born and raised in Toronto, Mark Puigmarti had never studied art in any formal setting, but rather was driven by an interest to make things and observe how things were made and work. In 1993, by trial and error, Puigmarti began to experiment with blacksmithing techniques. His inspiration comes from working with the physical material and having an understanding of what it will do, and how it will react to different techniques in order to challenge that outcome. Currently, Puigmarti’s work explores the unique effect of forging standard metal profiles to exploit the awkward result.
