Manuel Marín (1942–2007) was a highly acclaimed Spanish sculptor celebrated for his innovative contributions to contemporary art. After studying at the School of Arts and Crafts in Jaén, Marín moved to Madrid in the 1960s, where he began experimenting with abstract and geometric forms in his sculptural work. His artistic style evolved over the years, reflecting influences from constructivism and minimalism, with a focus on geometric shapes and clean lines. Marín's sculptures often feature an interplay between positive and negative space, inviting viewers to engage with the dynamic relationships within and around his artworks. In 1969, Marin became interested in mobiles as sculpture, and it quickly became obvious that he had discovered his ‘raison d’être’ and his ‘métier’.

Manuel Marín's sculptures have been exhibited in major museums and institutions internationally, showcasing the global impact of his innovative approach to form and structure. His works can be found in the collections of prominent institutions such as the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and the Art Institute of Chicago also feature Marín's sculptures, highlighting the widespread recognition and appreciation of his significant contributions to the world of contemporary sculpture. Manuel Marín's legacy endures through his exploration of abstraction and geometry, inspiring subsequent generations of artists and shaping the discourse around sculptural form.
