Nothing is left to chance, it’s all about paying tribute and making it its own.

Thierry Martino may have displayed a variety of references in his evolving art; he always stayed true to himself. He is a humanist, a visionary, a rebel and an artist at heart.

In his quest for novelty and exception, Thierry Martino casts silver into eclectic and cult artifacts: roaring machines, screaming guitars, hidden temples…

But first he was born!

Thierry Martino worked at the famous French brand Reminiscence from 1990 to 1995, in a world of beauty and fanciness, at the heart of know-how. A Made in France touch that he will polish at the Ecole Nationale de bijouterie de Saumur. Thierry Martino opened his first two shops in the South of France in 1992.

But curiosity took over! Thierry traveled around the world to discover other cultures. Initiatory and shaman encounters enriched his experience and influences. It transformed his Art and laid the foundations for what was about to become SoulFetish.
