Read The Cult Collective's interview with America here.

AMERICA MARTIN is a Colombian-American fine artist based in Los Angeles and a rising star in the contemporary art world whose works have been shown in museum and solo and group exhibitions nationwide. America describes herself as a painting anthropologist, working primarily with paint on canvas and paper to explore the human experience – and the human form.

America Martin finds inspiration everywhere, but it is not by happenstance or easily won. Like a true virtuoso, she searches relentlessly – sketchbook in hand and camera around neck – often among “voiceless” people whom many consider insignificant; Martin disagrees. Instead, she finds in them truth, vitality and beauty so devastating that she is compelled to transpose it into effigy profound enough to break your heart. That is the essence of Martin’s vision, and through her eyes life is not only sublime, but it finally makes gorgeous, perfect sense.

Taking inspiration from Mid-Century Modernist masters, America’s distinctive style is underscored by the use of boldly brushed lines and punctuated bursts of color to imply tone and mood. She treats her subjects with an obvious reverence, and in a manner that captures their individuality and their dignity.
