Javier Martinez

Artist's Profile

Javier Martinez Cuban artist living in Miami Florida, creating art that makes you recreate, I have been creating art ever since I was a child, always fascinated with the current modern pictorial as the Cubism of Picasso, Juan Gris, Fernad Leger Wifredo Lam and others, With a combination of Fruits, Guitars, and People  that focus on composition and color. always looking to create new images and sensations. through varied media as painting sculpture, silk-screen printing, engravings etc

It can be said of this Cuban artist without hesitation or exaggeration that his paintings are as Cuban as they are personal and optimistic. The use of color is usually rich, vibrant and brilliant.  It makes the body of work part of Cuba most representative artistic expressions. The most frequent themes are farmers guajiros, guitars, sugar cane, and mulatas revealing the artist personal poetic expression and tenderness, as well as a clearly defined sense of Cuban culture. The composition, drawing, and conception of all his paintings appear simple and legible as required by a poem which the artist visually narrates.  The transparency and human values of Javier Martinez emerge like biographical painting expressions of his very personal style and manners. At first sight, it could be said his paintings are an easy, comforting and a pleasing experience.  This apparent indulgence is not simplicity, but explains the strong influence of Cubism. Influence which he has achieved by taking his personal interpretations to the extreme; seeking to give us a work of art which is pleasant, serene, and allows us to disconnect from the complexity of everyday life and depersonalization from the outside world. His work is both soothing and enjoyable and has the appeal of domestic bliss. It seems to stand out and remind us of times gone by. An art form in need of rescue.

La tematica constante del campesino, el trabajo Agricola y las frutas tropicales, enraizadas en la geografia insular cubana acompanan con tanidos de guitarra  las obras de Javier Martinez.

Sus cuadros se estructuran con alientos picassianos y transparencias jugosas,  ritmos voluptuosos y mieles de canaveral.

Profundamente popular y calido el curvilineo movimiento del contorno de hombres  mujeres vegetacion y animales  dejan entrever la herencia formal de Carlos Enriquez  en perfecto y maduro equilibrio con la estetica formal del cubismo sintetico de Pablo Picasso.

Javier Martinez  posee  un lenguaje propio y maduro, sencillo , bien pensado y estructurado. Sus obra transpira cubania calor sencillez sincera emocion y sobre todo refleja una solida formacion profesional afincada en una constante practica .

Un cuadro de Javier  en cualquier pared  es una sonrisa cargada de nobleza  siempre claro siempre brillante  siempre verdadero.
