Sergio Martinez

Sergio Martínez Cifuentes was born in Concepción, Chile, on the 7th of July 1966. When he was still a boy, he excelled in drawing, which along with his poems and short musical compositions began to mold his adolescent persona into a romantic and an existentialist form. It was during this phase that he took part in many youth art competitions where he obtained a significant number of prizes, which helped him understand the true importance of his relationship with plastic arts and so he started his self-teaching process.

Sergio Martínez Cifuentes was born in Concepción, Chile, on the 7th of July 1966. When he was still a boy, he excelled in drawing, which along with his poems and short musical compositions began to mold his adolescent persona into a romantic and an existentialist form. It was during this phase that he took part in many youth art competitions where he obtained a significant number of prizes, which helped him understand the true importance of his relationship with plastic arts and so he started his self-teaching process.

During his first phase he took to descriptive realism, and showed great mastery of forms and an elegant and contained use of colour in his landscapes, which were his main subject. In 1987 he married Lizeth who became the first subject of his first portraits and nudes, with which he discovered a new challenge in the human form. This he has proved by making the nude the subject which from the 1990s has dominated almost all of his canvases. From their beginning, his portraits became an important part of this artist’s work. He is not happy merely to find a simple likeness of the person who is being painted: in his search for perfectionism he hopes to capture the gestures and crucial features of the person. He is associated with the Pre-Raphaelites, because of the interesting interpretive brushstrokes in his compositions, and the effects of volume and light do not seem to be difficult to him.

For eleven years he directed his own painting workshops (1992-2003) in Concepción, Chile, with a large number of people with whom he has exhibited important works in the city. Since 2002 he has taken part in international art fairs of which Caracas, Buenos Aires, California and New York are worthy of mention. 2003 saw him complete a mural in Kingston College in Concepción. He later moved to Spain and settled in Madrid where he lives today.

From 2004 Sergio Martínez has worked with the prestigious Sammer Gallery which has a permanent exhibition of his works. In recent years he has exhibited in various European galleries such as the Albemarle Gallery in London and the Vazquez Kunst Gallery in Blaricum, Holland. At present his work is exhibited in the Cuadro Fine Art Gallery in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This spring he is invited to exhibit in Gallery Petley’s in London. Today we are likely to find Sergio surrounded by large canvases with stunning scenes of beautiful dancers. It deeply evokes the harmony and the beauty of the careful poses. He has been immersed in his “Dancers” series for over two years and it will shortly be launched. According to the artist: “ Dancers are a inexhaustible resource which is tremendously seductive, by depicting them I can transmit things; they take comfort in each other, they confide in each other, they wait for auditions, they gaze at the audience from behind the curtains and they apply make-up. Whatever it is you have to say, whether it is simple or complicated, is transformed into beauty when it is said by means of a gesture or a movement by these magical performers”.

Artwork Collections

Illustiration Art Collection

Like Norman Rockwell, Seuss personally created every rough sketch, preliminary drawing, final line drawing and finished work for each page of every project he illustrated. Despite the technical and budgetary limitations of color printing during the early and mid-twentieth century, Dr. Seuss the artist was meticulous about color selection. He created specially numbered color charts and elaborate color call-outs to precisely accomplish his vision for each book. Saturated reds and blues, for example, were carefully chosen for The Cat in the Hat to attract and maintain the visual attention of a six-year-old audience. By the time Seuss’s book career took off, sharp draftsman skills were evident in drawings. His ability to move a storyline ahead via illustrations filled with tension, movement and color became a hallmark component of his work, and the surreal images that unfolded over six decades became the catalyst for a humorous and inspired learning experience.

Bronze Collection

Artist Leo Rijn, the inaugural sculptor for the Dr. Seuss Tribute Collection I, was selected to launch this project due to his prized work with some of today’s top talent in the world of film, entertainment and the visual arts (including Tim Burton, Ang Lee and Steven Spielberg). Rijn has been identified as one of today’s brightest sculpting talents because of his ability to breathe life into the written word and successfully transform two-dimensional ideas into three-dimensional works of art. Universal Studios commissioned Leo to develop and oversee the creation of numerous maquette scale models for the Monumental Dr. Seuss Sculptures at Seuss Landing in Orlando, Florida. Leo was instrumental in the art direction for many of the sculpted characters and buildings now on display at this permanent Seuss attraction. His strikingly accurate Seuss works embody a masterful and intuitive Seussian sensibility, establishing him as a leading talent in interpretive sculpting.

Taxidermy Colletion

Seuss embarked on an ingenious project in the early 1930s as he evolved from two-dimensional artworks to three-dimensional sculptures. What was most unusual for these mixed-media sculptures was the use of real animal parts including beaks, antlers and horns from deceased Forest Park Zoo animals where Seuss’s father was superintendent. Unorthodox Collection of Taxidermy was born in a cramped New York apartment and included a menagerie of inventive creatures with names like the “Two Horned Drouberhannis,” “Andulovian Grackler,” and “Semi-Normal Green-Lidded Fawn.” Shortly after Seuss created this unique collection of artworks, Look Magazine dubbed Seuss “The World’s Most Eminent Authority on Unheard-Of Animals.” To this day, Seuss’s Unorthodox Collection of Taxidermy remains as some of the finest examples of his inventive and multi-dimensional creativity.

 

Secret Art & Archives

Illustrator by day, surrealist by night, Seuss created a body of irrepressible work that redefines this American icon as an iconographic American artist. Yet, the Secret Art often shows a side of the artist that most readers, familiar with him through his classic children’s books, have never seen. This collection, created over a period of more than 60 years, encompasses the entirety of Seuss’s multi-dimensional talent. The artistic golden thread highlighted throughout this collection is apparent in each wildly imaginative and surreal Secret Art image. The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss is an inimitable collection of artworks created at night for his own personal enjoyment. These works were rarely, if ever, exhibited during his lifetime and provide a deeper glimpse into the art and life of this celebrated American Icon.
