Rae Martini‘s paintings hark back to his time as a graffiti artist when he spent many years painting on the streets and trains of his native Italy. Today he makes abstract paintings - a graffiti expression on canvas – which actually look like images of ruined walls, metallic surfaces covered and layered in graffiti, tags, posters, etc. To create the wonderful textures in his paintings he often uses fire and dirt giving his work a real grit and bite – a natural progression from the street to the gallery.
He’s currently showing his work at the Carmichael Gallery, 5797 Washington Blvd, Culver City, California until 8th October, 2012
