Medium

Eddie Martinez’s frenetic, kaleidoscopic mixed-media paintings draw from art historical traditions such as action painting, Neo-Expressionism, and the CoBrA movement. Martinez filters tenets from his aesthetic predecessors through coarse brushwork, spray paint, and abstract forms and rhythms. His motifs often derive from popular culture and have included cartoonish ducks, skulls, and clowns. Martinez briefly studied at the Art Institute of Boston before dropping out. His largely self-taught stylings have landed him exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, London, Stockholm, Seoul, and Brussels, among other cities. His work belongs in the collections of the Bronx Museum of the Arts, the Hiscox Collection, La Colección Jumex, the Saatchi Collection, and the Yuz Museum, among others. Martinez’s canvases have sold for seven figures on the secondary market.
