Artist — Series 8 — Lilian Martinez

Series 8

Lilian Martinez


Lilian Martinez ‘s work explores alternate histories where women, particularly women of color, are not excluded from specific cultural narratives typically associated with privilege. Through her paintings, sculptures and works on paper, Lilian blends past with present and future, combining classical architectural elements with contemporary pop cultural references to create the settings for her portraits, landscapes and still life’s.

She is the founder of BFGF, an art brand that makes functional art objects like keychains, throws and pillows available to a wide audience.
