Alberto Martinez Hernandez was born in Cuba in 1977, his first memories of any art related activity are drawing the passing steam engines with trucks full of sugar cane 50 metres from his parent’s house. Now based in Brighton, Martinez is known for his unique and imaginative surrealist images.
“Why not have penguins walking down the road. Or a Soviet rocket for a tower. Does it matter, really? Isn’t Brighton itself surrealist enough? Maybe being an outsider helps me to see the wonders and details of this city you can miss due to everyday life. I hope I never come across as judgemental or cynical in my paintings. My priority while I’m doing them is to have a laugh”.
