Born in Washington, D.C., Eugene James Martin (1938-2005) dedicated his life to living and working as a full-time artist, creating a body of work defined by distinct stylistic periods, ranging from black and white ink drawings to colorful acrylic paintings and collages. Throughout these styles, Martin’s hand is distinct and present. A mixture of organic forms, geometric shapes and even architectural worlds make up Martin’s universe of figures and creatures.
