Jose Martinez Vanegas
Jose Martinez Vanegas is a self-taught visual artist and architect born in Guayaquil, Ecuador. His art is based on creative mythological themes executed with color pencil applied with a unique technique that is demonstrated in the quality of his drawing. His work shows a synthesis of his interest in mythology and mastery in drawing that are applied with a technique, which according to him is the one, that expresses astonishing detail with so much beauty: the colored pencil. He has also dabbled in action painting with acrylic paints.
He has received art praises during his numerous international exhibitions, such as of Doctor Ignacio Carvallo Castillo, a well know art curator, art critic and writer cited of Martinez's work: "There is no, in the current instance of Latin American painting a similar effort of beauty so natural that it reaches the poetic atmosphere of art. Of space, of flight; it also drives an original vibration the spirit of those who observe these dreamy creations."
He has developed his painting since 1988. His international exhibits have been well praised with exhibitions in Guayaquil, Quito and throughout the United States.
