FAREWELL TO MARTIN CHIRINO MAGICIAN OF THE SPIRAL The sculptor has died but his work is eternal and with it remains this poet of space, sculptor of the wind, titan of sand and iron. Martin Chirino just died at the age of 94. He is considered a genius of Abstract Sculpture, founder of El Paso art group and the most cosmopolitan of XX century Canarian artists. He was an art intellectual. He never renounced his roots, Canary Islands, where he returned whenever he could. He left there a valuable legacy of his own foundation in Castillo de la Luz. He was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in 1925, by the sea, in a family environment linked to the shipyards of Puerto La Luz.
