Donald Martiny

American, 1953
Donald Martiny was born in Schenectady, NY, in 1953 and currently resides and works in Connecticut. He pursued his artistic education at the School of the Visual Arts, the Art Students League in New York, New York University, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
Martiny's works have been featured in museum exhibitions worldwide, including at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, the Courtauld Institute of Art, the Alden B. Dow Museum of Art, the Falmouth Museum, and the Cameron Art Museum. His pieces are part of permanent collections at prestigious institutions such as the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA; the Newcomb Art Museum at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA; the Fort Wayne Museum of Art; and the Lamborghini Museum in Bologna, Italy.
Known for his innovative technique, Martiny creates his paintings on the floor using water-based polymer and pigment on aluminum, primarily using his hands to manipulate the paint and capture the essence of a brushstroke. Considered an action painter, Martiny physically embodies his emotions through his paint strokes. Mounting the works on aluminum, suspending them off the wall, results in a sculptural relief effect, further emphasizing the dynamic and expressive nature of his art.
