|Martina Shapiro||Biography: www.MartinaShapiro.com - I am a Canadian artist, born in the Czech Republic. My paintings are influenced mostly by Fauvism and Expressionism, but also by Art Deco, Pop-Art and the old masters. Through the use of expressive, vibrant color, abstraction and distortions, I seek to portray human emotions and passions in my still life, landscape and abstract figure and nude paintings. My favorite artists are Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Egon Schiele, Mark Rothko, Peter Max, Rubens and El Greco, among others.
