MARTIN DURAZO is multi-media artist whose work explores fringe subcultures and the expression of personal fulfillment rooted in dangerous excesses. Born out of rebellion against the status quo, his work is located in the intersection of a grungy aesthetic combined with the polish of high-design. He is known for creating large-scale installations combining paintings, ready-made objects, video, sound, light, and performance. Durazo is the recipient of the City of Los Angeles Individual Artists Fellowship and is a California Community Foundation Fellow. He has exhibited at numerous prestigious venues locally, nationally and internationally including ArtForum Berlin and Art Basel Miami Beach. Martin Durazo holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Art from Pitzer College.
