What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

According to graffitimundo, self-taught graffiti artist Mart started his own street art movement at the age of 12 in his home town of Buenos Aires, Argentina. His poor mother.

His work is often characterized as “bicycle-themed” art. Maybe it’s because he started so young that his works nearly always include bikes; whimsical, cheery ones. If it really is the age at which he started that directed his theme, I guess we should be grateful he didn’t decide to paint boobs instead.

Of late, he’s been experimenting with more abstract pieces as well.  I like them, but it’s his figural stuff I’m most in love with.  At first, his work seems deceptively simple, but the longer and closer you look, the more jumps out at you. His flickr account, linked below, includes some lovely close ups of details it would be easy to miss otherwise.
