Meet the Artist: America Martin
AMERICA MARTIN is an internationally represented Colombian-American fine artist based in Los
Angeles. America is a painter and a sculptor. The magnetic pull of Martin's work is authentic,
generated by both her ability to express a unique gesture that speaks to a universal truth (thus, we
recognize it instantly) and her exceptional skill at rendering that truth via the human form. She pulls
from the stylistic lessons of the classics and its derivations with indigenous subject matter, while
redefining what it is to combine abstract and indigenous motifs.
Martin’s art and personality encapsulate a sense of enthusiasm and hope. While born in the US, the roots of America’s Colombian heritage deeply penetrate her work. People are Martin’s dominant subject. They are large in size, vivacious and accessible, and seem to burst out of the limits of each canvas or sculpture. Within this pulsating interplay of color, texture, line, and shape there is always America’s signature expression that identifies each work as an America Martin.
