Scape Martinez is an accomplished multidisciplinary artist and writer. He was born in Newark, New Jersey, to Puerto Rican immigrant parents. Scape grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, and has been involved in graffiti art since the 1980′s. Since then he has pushed the boundaries as to what graffiti/street art could be whether that's in fine art, public art, or even in the entrepreneur space.
As a recognized artist, his fine art paintings combine elements of graffiti and abstract expressionism to create large scale, rhythmic and expressive compositions that transcends mere technique.
His first book, "GRAFF: the Art and Technique of Graffiti," is an international bestseller. In 2009 he began public speaking engagements to discuss his unique perspective on art and creativity. His insightful, thought-provoking and highly visual lectures inform, inspire, and motivate both young adults and working professionals alike.
