Profile
Expressionist (USA)

Born in Lima, Peru, autodidact artist, Martín Revolo is many things: musician, photographer, advocate for the Hispanic community. But most of all he describes himself as a human being. And a very considerate one. Humble, and accepting, doing his best to let go of criticism, and his urge to control a process and its outcome. His very unique artwork evolving along with him.

Martín currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. Self-assertion and expression of principle are important components of Martín’s artistic life.

Connections between his art and his early life in South America are always present. For Martín the inner necessity is still the basis and source of nourishment for his art. He resides in all of his work. Though the viewer may take a different meaning from his images, all have experienced a part of the narrative that is the artist himself.

Statement

My work travels through an experimental release of spontaneous energy and I consider this experience to be my art. The physical object is the result at the end of my journey. This experimentation leads to new technical and conceptual processes, as I am always pushing the boundaries of traditional painting and printmaking.

In my attempt to tell a story I create imagery that is both real and surreal, laced in fantasy. The story continues to grow as I rely on my conscious and subconscious to create and transfer those thoughts to an image. It is from that process that I find myself to be most present in me.
