The landscape paintings of Jesús Martín appeal to lovers of both modern and classical art. With deep impasto and mysterious, rich tones of color, Martín draws from his travels and experiences to express visually what is invisible to the human eye. His work is not necessarily representative of what he has seen, but what he has felt in the moment, reflecting all the culture, art, music, and circumstances that are a part of daily life. Martín is a firm believer in the spiritual aspects of the physical world, and his paintings, while mostly figurative, are truly remarkable for the intangible emotions and sensations they inspire in his viewers.
Martín began painting and drawing at a very early age, on the ruggedly scenic and remote Canary Islands where he grew up. As an adult, he developed a passion for both travel and art history, and his work is strongly inspired by the places he’s visited and the masterpieces he’s encountered. He considers himself a tireless seeker of knowledge and, above all, hopes his art can help other people.
