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 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.
His palette is of a true colorist. His imagery from the primitive warriors of the past rendered Emilio as one of the most authentic creators in Miami. He has works represented in private and corporate collections in the U.S. and abroad.
