At 47, Eddie Martinez continues to reach new heights. In addition to a suite of large-scale exhibitions at BLUM and Galerie Max Hetzler, the American artist was recently appointed by the small micro-state of San Marino to represent its pavilion at the ongoing Venice Biennale. His large gestural paintings have reached sums in the six figures and have been represented by a number of institutions across the world, including the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Reina Sofia in Madrid and the Long Museum in Shanghai.

In collaboration with Avant Arte, Martinez will soon release a new time-limited print entitled Scaffold. Characteristic of his practice, Martinez has distorted the loose image of a vase of flowers — originally a painting, that the artist has imbued with the same level of dynamism in its printed form. “Scaffold is full of power and life, in keeping with the artist’s rhythmic, dance-like approach to making art,” said Avant Arte in a statement. “The strong colors and sharp contrast of his original painting have been maintained in the edition with a precisely calibrated base print, three bespoke silkscreen layers and a matte varnish seal.”

For an artist whose work has reached well into the six figures, Scaffold is an attractive way to collect Martinez’ art at only $1,360 USD unframed and $1,707 USD in three framing options. Limited to an edition of 200, the UV pigment print is made on 410gsm Somerset Tub Sized Radiant White paper with three silkscreen layers and matte silkscreen varnish. The artwork comes signed and numbered by the artist and will only be made available through a drawing that closes on June 18 at 6am PT.
