Matchbox Art by Joseph Martinez Revives Petite Images

Joseph Martinez creates gorgeously intricate matchbox art that is a pure delight for the eye. His ability for creating such accurate depictions and conveying these in such detail on these miniature surfaces is admirable.

The artist's subjects are iconic pop culture figures such as Darth Vader and Frida Khalo. The final work looks rather retro individually and vibrantly festive when looked at as a body of work.

Joseph Martinez has certainly picked an interesting and unique niche as his signature work. Creating art on forgotten and undiscovered surfaces demonstrates true artistic vision in my opinion.

By optimizing these surfaces, artists inspire their audience to look at their surroundings with potential. Martinez has certainly done an exceptional job re-purposing these unused tools.
