Since 1996 Mr Martínez has been living in a home for the physically handicapped. Occupational therapy introduced him to mouth painting at the beginning of 1998. He is fascinated by the idea of becoming a good artist in the not too distant future. He attends a painting course twice a week and paints a multitude of topica with the greatest of enthusiasm.
