Jeremy Martin has done art since the age of 3. He has worked in many traditional mediums such as painting, drawing, digital art and ceramics to name a few. Jeremy graduated from Wayne State University (Detroit, MI) in 2012 with a Bachelors of Science in Fashion Merchandising. He also completed a minor in Fine Arts. Jeremy purchased an iPad in 2015 and began creating his portrait series.
Jeremy considers his jewelry a cross between art and sculpture. Each unique piece is made by hand using hollow aluminum tubing. His debut collection "Unbound" reflects his inspirations from nature, architecture, and sculpture. Unbound means not held by a chemical bond, gravity, or other physical force. Jeremy is interested in making jewelry that is pliable and easy to wear. Aluminum is a soft metal that doesn't tarnish and is easy to mold.
Jeremy is inspired by fashion, music, and pop culture. He has painted over 280 paintings. Jeremy has been acknowledged by celebrities such as Prince, David Bowie, Patricia Fields, Boy George, IMAN, Aretha Franklin, Michael Strahan, RuPaul, Queen Latifah and James Goldstein to name a few. For his 100th portrait he painted Pope John Francis. Jeremy has painted top figures in pop culture, such as Prince, Terry Richardson, Aretha Franklin, David Bowie, Lupita Nyong'o, Lenny Kravitz, Beyonce, and Pope Francis among others. Recently Jeremy was asked by film director Mark Bozek to create a portrait of New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham for his 2017 documentary "The Times of Bill". A new feature film documentary about legendary NY Times photographer Bill Cunningham. Jeremy also created a portrait for super model Iman for her 60th birthday featured on her Instagram. He uses his iPad Pro as a canvas on which he paints. Portraits are created using the Sketches application.
