Acrylic Paint Insets, 7’7″ x 10’3″
Jet Martinez’s paintings reinterpret the Mexican folk art of Amate paintings, which depict birds and other animals within bright botanical scenery. Though stylized in a flat, graphic manner, the use and application of color create vibrance—static imagery celebrating life at its most ecstatic. Martinez begins with a traditional rendering, and then integrates his own visual language.
