Steady Hands, Blurry Vision

I absolutely love the tiny matchbook art of Joseph Martinez and stoked to see that he has a solo show opening this Saturday at Soze Gallery out in Los Angeles, CA. His oil paintings are stunning from the scale to the impeccable detail he packs into every little piece, as with the above painting. In a time that many people opt to create huge and over-the-top work it's delightful to see how something as simple as a matchbook paintings can be beautiful and effective.
