About the Artist:
Born and raised in the city of Arequipa, Peru, Victor Martinez has been a painter all of his life. He started his artistic training at an early age with his father, artist Victor Manuel Martinez Malaga. His father taught him the ways of an artist and painting techniques.
Martinez’s work is recognized for capturing the life of the Andean people. Victor respectfully recreates their way of life communicating their unique qualities that have so inspired him. It is that same portraiture work which has been featured extensively and has become his trademark.
Each year he takes the journey back to his native country with Gladys, his wife of forty-one years. It is in Peru where he rediscovers the Peruvian, Andean villages and people that inspire him to continue painting after so many years.
