Alexis Martínez

Alexis Martínez, a visual artist originally from Tijuana, explores art through corporeality and its representation, rethinking the use of specific materials. His artistic practice primarily revolves around installations, site-specific interventions, and performances. He materializes his work in the form of clothing to generate discourses about the body, using materials such as ceramics, soil, plastic, ice, and silicone to create living sculptures.

Martinez was part of the artistic education program “Nuevas narrativas nativas” by The Front Arte y Cultura and was a beneficiary of the Young Creators Program by FONCA in the category of performance and alternative media. Additionally, he was selected for the “XXIII Bienal Plástica de Baja California.” His work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions in Mexico, the United States, Spain, and Brazil.
