About the artist:
Eddie Martinez was born in 1977 on Groton Naval Base, Groton, Connecticut. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. A self-taught artist who is well known for his vibrant colours, dynamic brushstrokes, and impeccable intuition, energy exudes from the brisk markings he makes with acrylic, oil, spray paint, Sharpies, and even baby wipes. Martinez's practice reflects elements of historical movements such as action painting and neo-expressionism, whilst spontaneously alternating between traditional and unconventional modes of painting. Constructing a fantastical world through a plethora of playful drawings, bold paintings, and endearing creaturelike bronzes, Martinez continues to revitalise his practice on a regular basis.
Martinez’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at museums and institutions including the Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York, the Drawing Center, New York, Yuz Museum, Shanghai, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Michigan, and the Davis Museum, Wellesley, Massachusetts. His works are included in public collections such as the Saatchi Collection and Hiscox Collection, London; Colección Jumex, Mexico City; the Marciano Collection, Los Angeles; the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C., the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Philadelphia, Morgan Library & Museum, New York; and the Davis Museum, Wellesley.
