Gerard Marti, owner of the Robert Kidd Gallery, was born in Marseille and schooled at École des Beaux Arts in Paris. Since a kid, he always knew he wanted to pursue a career in the music industry even at a young age. After school he became a musician and songwriter, then he became a sound engineer, record producer and video director for one of the biggest music labels in the world: EMI Records. Eventually, after becoming frustrated with the ever-changing recording industry, Marti moved to Maui and opened his first Celebrity Galleries.
