Carmen Martini is a Spanish born artist currently based between the USA and Europe. She works mostly on raw burlap and linen, creating the surfaces she uses for her work from scratch.
She studied History of Art in Asturias, Spain as a part of the academic requirements to get her Bachelors Degree in Violin performance. She also holds a GPD in Violin from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University and a Graduate Business Certificate form the University of Baltimore. In 2020 she received the certificate "The Architectural Imagination" from Harvard X. Her work has appeared in several exhibitions in the USA since 2016.
“My work reflects an interest in form, texture and the mixing of contrasting colours. I usually work on burlap or linen materials in their natural untreated form. Working on burlap, the material retains imperfections that then form part of each work, creating different surfaces.”
