J.J. Martin’s new body of work consists of large-scale portraits painted against backgrounds of varying intensity and a subseries entitled “Mandalas” combining the concept of “Role Models” with the notion of healing our society in a post-Covid world. Enter into an immersive experience —specially prepared for the exhibit— which are meditation mandalas using his artwork. The paintings create a space for viewers to connect with their inner selves and become –then and there– role models in their daily lives or community. Building Bridges and curator Marisa Caicholo bring this traveling show from the Mexican artist to Santa Monica

About J.J. Martin

JJ Martin is a Mexican artist currently living and working between  Mexico City and Los Angeles, CA. His work, which depicts contemporary-looking characters, is an approach to the portrait. For his protagonists in each portrait, he uses models that he finds in daily life or who are extracted from his imagination. Each protagonist acts as a visual representation of an absence or presence. Observing his work, we can confirm that each of Martin’s pieces are a true reflection of how he develops conversations and relationships with others. The exhibition “Role Models” is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles.
