Artist's Biography
Martin & Sicilia (José Arturo Martin and Javier Sicilia) Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain, 1974 & 1971.

Martin & Sicilia live and work in Madrid and Tenerife. This artistic duo is taking a great leap in its career. Martin & Sicilia have been working together for 15 years, and in 2007 they won the First Brugal Acquisition Award for Emerging Artists at ARCO, Madrid.

Martin & Sicilia’s work is always dramatic – foreshadowing accidents or violence. The artists are critical of mass trends and social networks, blending scenes in which they create self-portraits as characters in the events they depict. In their artistic creations the tradition of painting and drawing converge with new technology and forms of visual media: photography, cinematography and advertising communication. Installation has become an important medium for highlighting the theatrical nature of their themes.
