Canvas Portfolio

I'm a VJ, audiovisual artist and designer. My artwork has evolved around the creation of loops and the animation of photographs, basing my main exploration on the surreal landscapes, collage and organic textures. I'm also a musician, producer and a tireless researcher in love with the process of imagining what is about to take place.

I understand that the canvas is a framework in itself and I work according to the fact that the piece reaches its maximum potential, resignifying or promoting the message of the musical piece, putting the visual at the service of the music. As a VJ and a Live performer I learned to synchronize music and image with enough impact; my work is based on finding an appropriate concept that summarizes the spirit of a song (or an album) keeping in mind that rhythm and energy are as important as colors, shapes and movement. I like to find the exact point where the visual and the music coincide as pieces that seem to have been created together, even if they are self-sustaining arworks that were built independently.

We can start working from a cover (or any other pre-existing image) or create an ideal visual concept for your track from scratch. I can suggest starting points or we can explore together until we find the perfect raw material. If you prefer, I will keep you up to date on the evolution of the project to ensure that we are moving on the right path.

I can also work in video editing, 3D animation, live visuals design, mapping, live set design with Ableton and Resolume and audio post production.

    I have had Martin design Spotify Canvases for us on several occasions. He is extremely creative yet always eager to incorporate our ideas into his designs. We we certainly call on him again in the future. Highly Recommended!

    This is another project with Martin. Once again I am overwhelmed, these ideas he embeds in my covers. The more I look the more details I discover. Let Martin work without guidelines, he lets himself be inspired by the music. It's exciting to discover his work every time. Martin thank you

    Martin dropped in on very short notice and got straight to work to deliver a wonderful canvas and some extra promotional goodies. I had a few themes for the design but no preconceived design ideas and I decided to leave these completely up to Martin's creativity. He didn't disappoint and captured the joy and positivity essence of the song immediately. He gave me a few options which are always nice but I went with his primary design as it was right on point. The results were wonderful!

    Martin created a second project for me, a cover, a canvas for Spotify and an animation for my song. He only received the music, no other information. Give him time and his imagination has no limits. He created an incredible piece of work. The collaboration with Martin is unique, he communicates very clearly. To get the best result, I can only recommend Martin! I look forward to working with him again!
    Thanks Martin, see you soon Toussaint

    Listen: I don't say this lightly --- RUN --- don't walk, to hire Martín. I've had a lot of experience with hiring people for visual jobs who phone things in and don't pay attention to the music or the prompt of the task and Martín is the opposite. His attention to detail is incredibly impressive and makes you feel like you're an important artist on a major labor the way he takes care of your art by being meticulous with his art. He is a great communicator and his professionalism is umatched.

    I have worked with Martin to design Canvases for our songs on Spotify. He always works to understand exactly how we want the visual to complement the song and he always provides several alternate ideas to choose from. He is a true artist and a pleasure to work with.

    After Martín did such a great job with my first video, I used him again for my second one. Martín was able to create the perfect video in only one draft..no revisions needed at all. Martín also provided detailed explanations to my questions regarding file format and sound quality...rest assured he will always make your audio sound optimal. I highly recommend Martín.

    Martin is an absolute professional, a master of his craft, and an all round great guy. He communicated very clearly, and understood the brief and nailed my animation first go. He works fast while being both technical and thorough. Delighted with the end result and will surely be back for more in future!
