Gabriela “Gabo” Martinez was born in Tarimoro, Guanajuato, MX and currently lives in Houston, TX. She earned her BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in Ceramics from Texas State University in 2018. Inspired by her indigenous Mexican culture and her research into Native American visual traditions, Gabo works with terracotta clay, sgraffito technique, and vibrantly colored slips. Her pieces recall imagery of the Mexican towns where she spent her summers, and evoke the artist’s ongoing reconciliation of civilizations, languages, and generations.
