Honduran born American artist Emilio Martinez embraced painting as a means of expression. He was born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras in 1981. He immigrated with his family to Miami in 1994, where he has resided since.
His work comes to life through his persistence of the dream realm – created through the constant repetitive dreams from his childhood memories. He has ongoing contact with the spiritual world through icons, symbols and texts from an unknown past of ancient primitive afro indigenous descendants. His work comes to life through the bi-cultural puzzle, which he decodes on a daily basis he uses a sketchbook where he records his obsessions, passions, and fears.
Emilio Martinez artworks are part of private and corporate collections in the U.S. and abroad.
