Today we’d like to introduce you to Raul Martinez.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
The passion started as a young comic book fan. I unknowingly began sketching my favorite heroes. Quickly, I found inner peace in doing so. It gave me an escape from the world I felt a victim too. Rather soon I transformed into an all-out graffiti artist, vandalizing your government’s property for their wrongdoing, as I seen it. Once reaching adulthood I realized art was my “thing”, I was able to reach others than myself. I paint to inspire, to bring sense to a confused living, understanding we are all different and accepting it by finding your own interpretation of art.
Please tell us about your art.
Abstract art I believe is my place on the shelf of creation. I use multiple media to bring words to complete a sentence, which then comes together like paragraphs in a story. I paint women because she’s the ultimate symbol of God, Mother Nature. Produced in many different forms and surroundings as that is what she is. Rich, poor, both beautiful and ugly, Mother Nature is soft and hard depending on where you stand. I want people to view my work to understand that we’re all children of the same women although she may appear rather different from one another.
Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
Focus on your passion. Money is something that’ll come if the people see your message. As an artist, investing towards that message and the message only is the true meaning. An artist doesn’t have a certain way of looking, nor do they drive a certain vehicle. A strong artist is an artist only.
