    Art Brokerage: America Martin American Artist: America Martin is an American painter and sculptor who is represented and collected internationally. Referring to herself as a painting anthropologist, her primary subject is the human form. Her distinctive style mixes abstract and indigenous motifs and is often compared to the mid-century masters. She credits her Columbian roots for her aesthetic and tastes. America was born in Los Angeles in 1980 to a family of artists. Her uncle is painter Knox Martin, her mother an academic, and her siblings all went on to pursue careers in the arts. At the age of nine, she came across a book on Vincent van Gogh and began to draw. Shortly thereafter, she began an eight-year apprenticeship with Vernon Wilson who was a professor at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She also worked briefly as an actress, notably as Patsy in Disney's The Rocketeer. Meanwhile, attending Crossroads School for the Arts and Sciences in Santa Monica, California. During her fifteen-year practice, she has worked in a variety of media including painting, drawing and sculpting in steel and aluminum. Perhaps her most iconic work is her large format paintings of nudes. In addition to her female nudes, Martin’s subjects include jazz musicians, street scenes, landscapes and still lives. Martin’s process is intrinsic to the work itself. She uses her whole body when painting, using the length of her arms to control the strokes. Her move to a new studio in Silverlake in 2009 allowed her to refine her process and experiment with a variety of new media. It has and continues to act as a venue to host a variety of cultural events that support artist and community. She traditionally works in collections- painting and drawing a unique body of work distinct to the location of the exhibition. Listings wanted.
