John Martini is an American artist born in 1948.
He lives and works in Key West, Florida, and in Veuxhaulles sur Aube, in Burgundy.
In the U.S. his workplace is the former movie theater of the black Bahamian village from the time of racial segregation; in France it is an old forge which was still active in the 60s.
His works carry a multitude of American and European influences, and seem like the participants of a magical and mysterious ritual, an invocation of shape and color throughsteel and flame.
It is at night, like in a voodoo or a sabbath, that John Martini gives birth to its creatures.
