(Mexico, b. 1961)
Lino Martinez’ career expands over twenty years. While in Mexico, Martinez formally trained under Muralist Mario Orozco Rivera. After arriving into the United States he discovered printmaking and lithography, now an integral part of his professional practice. Martinez is currently a Master Printer at Cirrus Editions LP where he has worked closely with artists John Baldessari and Denis Hollingsworth.
Through his printmaking oeuvre, he challenges image destabilization, net aesthetics, and digital expression while defragmenting collage and blending multiple processes into each configuration, such as drawing, painting, lithography or watercolor. Within his artwork he explores color abstraction, collage, figure, geometry and printmaking. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
