"It goes without saying that the current times are providing an absolute mass of information and visuals that have a huge potential of becoming noteworthy. So we've been enjoying watching young artists developing ways to introduce them within their work, sourcing their inspiration online, fully absorbed in the Internet culture. And one of those artists is Texas-based Mauro C. Martinez who has been exploring the human condition by observing and capturing our relationship with technology that both connects us globally and dissociates us from the actual reality. With a focus on our increasingly digital society, he is successfully utilizing metaphor, irony, and dark humor to reveal and critique our affair with contemporary imagery, regardless of how insignificant or mindless it might seem." - Sasha Bogojev

"The sensitive content series is probably my most notable at this point. These are a sort of simultaneous critique of the increasingly problematic nature of the world around us, as well as our decreased threshold for tolerance. I use an airbrush to paint the backgrounds of these and silkscreen for the text. The cursed images are a bit more straightforward as oil paintings, but each image can vary so much in the subject and look that it always makes for an exciting challenge to a painter."
"The cursed emojis are the newest series I’ve started. Of the two I’ve done, one is an oil painting and the other was made using aerosol and airbrush. Since I only just started them there’s still a lot to discover about my approach and intentions, but I’m excited to watch them unfold." MM
