Jean-Jose Martinez was born Dec. 3, 1962 in Châteaurenard (Bouches-du-Rhone).
After several years in the Alpes-Maritimes, then at the foot of Mont Ventoux, he now lives and works in the south of Drôme.
Painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, Jean-José is passionate about different techniques...
From the early 80s, he started his first oil paintings, freely and constantly looking.
A few years later, he adopts the technique of oil pastel, he continues to use it in his creations. It is for him a way of drawing more spontaneously, allowing overlays and scratching revealing its worked backgrounds.
He is interested in the use of acrylic for larger formats.
