Jel Martinez solo show in Chinatown NYC

About

The pieces that are part of Writings and Removals by Jel Martinez are modeled after the graffiti removal processes that take place daily in neighborhoods across America. In his youth, Jel was a graffiti artist who watched clean-up crews erase his work throughout the streets of Miami. His paintings are inspired by these experiences and include a multiphase approach that begins with texturing each canvas. Jel then adds writings tags, throw ups, and pieces, which are reminiscent of graffiti that one would expect to find in urban settings. Finally, he employs various removal approaches, or buff styles, creating an explosive color aesthetic reminiscent of the transformations seen on city walls when the removal process leads to the creation of a unique art form.
