Martin Cervantes Is an artist in Building 5 at the Workhouse Arts Center. He creates large abstract acrylic paintings of color and line in his paint splattered, extra large studio. Please visit him or take one of his many workshops, and meet one of the friendliest artists around. The image to the right, taken from his Welcome page, is so typical of Martin. Dots, beautiful colors and lines combine together to wish us “Welcome”.

Here is his statement about his work…
