Fine Artist + Muralist: Steve Martinez

RSVP for Exhibition Reception


Steve Martinez painted a 20’ x 8’ mural in the 1888 Workshop. We want to celebrate this project, his art, and the story behind his work with a special exhibition and live podcast event.

Los Angeles native Steve Martinez is a fine artist, muralist, photographer, and graphic designer. His contemporary work deals with the discourse between the symbolic and the realistic within daily urban life. The thread of Mayan symbols and hieroglyphs—both representative of Martinez’s history and culture—is inescapable in his work, always connecting the present to the past by uplifting, preserving, and honoring a significant layer of meaning and identity.

On display at the 1888 Center from May 31, 2018 through June 27, 2018

RSVP for the reception on Sunday, June 3, 5:00 p.m. at
