The work of Israel Martínez (Guadalajara, Mexico 1979) reflects about several social topics through sound, music and their relation to image. He has produced video installations, site-specific projects, actions, interventions and graphic works through the use of photography, typing, photocopying and other media. He has also made multi-channel sound installations and composed a music between electroacoustic and spatiality.
Since 2000 he has taken part in events from several artistic territories, especially in America and Europe. In 2007 he accomplished a Distinction Award of Prix Ars Electronica. In 2012 he was resident at the DAADʼs Artists-in-Berlin Program, and at Vienna's MuseumsQuartier in 2014. Some of his works have been acquired by two of the most important collections in Latin America: Jumex and MUAC/UNAM. His aural work is published and distributed worldwide by labels such as Sub Rosa, Aagoo and Abolipop. Since 2008 he teaches seminars and workshops on sound art and sound in contemporary art, he has also participated in some curatorial projects and writes texts intermittently.
