Enrique Martinez CelayaJack of all trades, a master of none?  In this case Enrique Martínez Celaya defies the saying, he is a painter, sculptor, photographer, writer, and poet and is a master of all.  griffin-Enrique Martinez Celaya

Through his art Enrique pushes the limits of literature, religion and philosophy.  It is obvious to the on-looker that his work has a deeper meaning behind it all.  

schneebettlei-Enrique Martinez CelayaEnrique already had a BS of Physics, and MS in Quantum Physics under his belt, and was on the verge of finishing his doctorate in physics when he quit and took on painting full-time.  His work can be found in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Museum of Contemporary Arts in LA.  

“What I have tried to do with my works is to observe–poorly, but better than I would’ve without art–who I am, who others are, and what the world is (Enrique Martínez Celaya)”     shoreworksonpaper-Enrique Martinez Celaya
