Artist Jun Martinez is in his 27th year as a celebrated and greatly admired artist.  One of the most collected and sought after series of his works are about the theme “summers of childhood,” which is also the title of his series of shows.  This series has fascinated gallery goers and has helped to earn for Mr. Martinez tremendous recognition and respect in the specialist circle devoted to art.  The series “summers of childhood” celebrate a season which is meant to be outdoors, under brilliant sunlight, where, as artist Martinez describes, “every element – human, flower, grass – throbs with life.”  He also states “these elements are animated under the artist’s hand by means of broken brush strokes and colors that define images in a very subtle manner…. There is a literal backdrop, often a garden or deep foliage, but not a bloom nor a leaf has distinct shape.”  It is likewise a very tender rendering that reveals the radiant faces of his characters, recurring but always coming up fresh, children just being themselves.  As only soft and fresh colors are used, none of the pieces are heavy.  There is a sureness behind every piece in terms of handling the media, color and composition.

 

The magnificent artwork of artist Jun Martinez adorn homes, offices and other locations of art collectors and art enthusiasts in the Philippines and around the world, whose names are too numerous to mention. 

 

Yet, despite all of the accomplishments and success which artist Martinez has enjoyed, he remains true and faithful, and states “To Him Who has given me my gift, I give back all the glory.”
