    Untitled, 2012 is imbued with Eddie Martinez’s signature artistic spontaneity. The gestural marks recount the scene of the work's making, encouraging the viewer to imagine Martinez energetically composing the painting in his studio. The artist who works within the heart of Brooklyn draws constant inspiration from his vibrant surroundings. The use of spray paint directly references the artist’s fascination with the canon of street art. Originally mixing oil and spray paint Martinez has created an immediately recognizable pictorial language which simultaneously displays abstract and figurative elements.
