Hello there, I'm Martin, a painter and drawer that is fascinated with identity and the ways people deal with how they are perceived. These topics are engaged primarily through portraiture in which I enjoy manipulating color and the marks made, as ways of conveying the tension and drama I feel to be within us all. 
I am currently a BFA painter/drawer attending CSU Chico who is working towards a profession of teaching art. Whether K-12 or university level, I love to spread my excitement about art that, in part, stems from an understanding of materials and concepts. Helping others gain such understanding as a guide to creating is a wonderful feeling that I plan to chase for the rest of my career. 
Most works are for sale and am open to commissioned portraits. 
Thanks for the support!

Let's start the new semester off on a good foot, yea?!

Now that the 2018 spring semester has come to an end, it's time to start planning for the fall semester. As a newly initiated BFA painter/drawer at CSU Chico, I am aiming to make bigger and better works (emphasis on the bigger!). By supporting my work you will be aiding in the beautification of northern California as well as shining a light on the positive impact of us emerging artists. Through the use of street art I know that local communities will be unable to ignore the unifying effect such projects have and that there is much to be gained by investing in the development of student endeavors.

Too many projects go unfinished and it is in part because of logistical hoops that must be jumped through, giving a bad rap to murals and artists in general.

This being said, every cent helps to push such projects reach completion while showing that us artists are hardworking individuals that care. Help me show that we care about our work as well as the communities with which we work!!

As the semester progresses, I will be posting more and more updates on the projects I am involved with so please stay tuned.

THANK YOU!!!
