Eddie Martinez


b. 1977 Connecticut US

Eddie Martinez has gained international recognition for his extraordinary use of line and manipulation of colour, which he applies aggressively and in vividly contrasting combinations to his paintings and sculptures. His style draws from a deep understanding of painting’s histories, filtered through personal experience, popular culture and sport. Described as “indomitable” by Interview magazine, Martinez’s paintings incorporate coarse brushwork and bold contours through the combination of mediums such as oil, enamel and spray paint, and often include collaged found objects.
