Nadia Martinez is a Honduran multimedia artist, based in Greenwich. After studying architecture in Honduras, she studied at the National Academy of Fine Arts in New York. Working in a variety of mediums, including sculpture, painting, printmaking, and installation, she says, allows her to express her vision more precisely: "My creative process is informed by the freedom I derive from working with different materials and mediums. I am interested in how humans interact with each other and what surrounds us, the things that shape our beliefs and values, and how these interactions and ideas produce change and adaptation. One of my constant aims is to communicate my perception of current events through my art. My works are commentaries on current social situations and my observations of our collective reactions. My goal is to provide a voice to those situations and issues, giving them a positive spin."
Nadia has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in individual and group exhibitions at the National Academy Museum, NY, NY; 4uattro Pareti Galleria, Napoli, Italy; Zorya Fine Art, Greenwich, CT; Art Basel week, Miami, FL; Stamford Art Association, Stamford CT; Södertälje Konstforening, Stockholm, Sweden; Salon Supercable de Jovenes XVI con FIA, Caracas, Venezuela; ArtLima, Lima, Peru; Pinta Art Fair, NY, NY; The Hub Center for the Arts, NY, NY; Macy Art Gallery at Columbia University, NY, NY, among others.
She has received many awards, including the VCFA Distinguished Artist Scholarship, The Albert Hallgarten Traveling Scholarship, and Artist in Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City in 2016. In 2018, Nadia was nominated for Women to Watch 2018, at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, DC.
