Artist's Statement: I enjoy making art that drops the viewer into a new set of possibilities. I have a diverse background in figure, landscape, surrealism, and synthetic abstract painting. My newer work integrates various elements from these traditions to convey a glimpse of visionary states of consciousness. I am deeply inspired by themes from Mayan art and biological/botanical beauty to evoke a sense of mystery and unfolding.

Biogaphy: Originally from Utah, Martin developed his art background in human figure, landscape, portraits, and visionary art at an early age. He received his Bachelor of Fine Art degree from the University of Utah, and worked for several years in product development and design. He continues to develop visionary imagery with painting and sculpting, and has been involved in the Burning Man community since 2005. Martin enjoys travel in Latin America, and lives with his family in Salt Lake.
