Next time you pick up some matches to light your cigarettes, candles or cannabis, think about doing a little art on them. That’s what Joseph Martinez of Denver, Colorado decided to do one day. Taking some oil paint, he carefully created images of celebrity like figures. Whether it was Boba Fett, Willy Wonka or Rick James, Martinez brought them to life on the inside cover of the matchbook. His ability to create such small figures in a clear way is remarkable. On his website, Josephmrtnz.com, the artist states:
“My work consist of various content. I am unable to constrict myself to any one particular subject. My overall goal is to share my ideas with the the viewer creating some sort of reaction, whether it may be good or bad. I most enjoy the process of the work being created, seeing it come along seems to be what keeps me going. There are hardly if any deep rooted meanings behind my work. I want the viewers to take whatever it is that they would like and decide for themselves.”
