Bio

Jorge Martínez is an Spanish artist based in London working on acrylic abstract pieces. He seeks to represent using only a palette knife the world he sees through the multi-layered pieces he develops from his London studio. A self-starter who first started painting during lockdown, he has now refined his practice through several courses at the Art Academy London.

Artist Statement

I approach my paintings with a sense of wonder and curiosity, never quite sure what the end result will be. My acrylic abstract pieces are a reflection of my mood and state of mind at the time of creation - the colors and shapes I choose represent the emotions I am experiencing.

Born in Spain and having lived in multiple places such as Hong Kong, Madrid, and London, I have been greatly inspired by the vibrant energy of big cities, as well as the tranquility and beauty of the countryside. I have also lived in small market towns, which has given me a unique perspective on life and greatly influenced my artistic practice.

Through the use of a palette knife, I aim to capture the essence of the world around me, creating multi-layered pieces that explore the interplay between color, texture, and form. My studio practice is focused on refining my techniques and exploring the boundaries of abstraction.

I believe that art has the power to connect us to ourselves and each other, and I strive to create works that resonate with people on a deep and personal level. Art that tells multiple stories and reflects emotions back to the viewer. My paintings invite the viewer to explore their own perceptions and emotions, encouraging them to engage with the world around them in a new and exciting way.

Overall, I am excited to continue on this journey of artistic exploration and discovery, and I am grateful for the opportunity to share my work with others.
