Martin Duvander uncovers a uniquely international vision. Growing up in Denmark, Zimbabwe and Greenland before living in Spain, London and Greece, working both in finance, advertising and software development, he is influenced by a flux of multicultural stimuli. Through his art he puts the world on canvas, carefully selecting and layering unusual materials and cut-outs from fashion magazines melding them with poetic statements infused with a hint of social satire. Duvander captures a street art feel combined with classical abstractism together with personal imprints in the form of poetry on canvas.
Since 2003, his work has been internationally exhibited at galleries and private foundations. Duvander lives and works in Venice Beach, California.
Duvander has long commented upon political and social injustices through his artwork. A firm believer in civil rights, Duvander believes that artistic expression is an effective vehicle to identify and comment upon inequalities.Inspired by the democratic activism of the civil rights in all of its forms Duvander seeks to add his voice to the chorus calling for equal rights for all.
Martin Duvander was recently chosen to showcase his art at the 2010 Golden Globe and the 2010 The Grammy's in Los Angeles, California and was behind the Rainbow Crosswalk painted in West Hollywood at the intersection of San Vincente and Santa Monica Boulevard, in June 2012.
