Press Release : The Artist Process" documentary


more information contact:

the streets of Harlem to the stages during Art Battles, Marthalicia Matarrita
has proven time after time to be one of the rawest and most talented
competitors to challenge in the illusive world of live visual performance, more
commonly known as live art. At any moment on any given day, she can be found in
one of the five burroughs competing in a show or performing for any of the
neighborhoods that have inspired her to set-up her canvas. In 2006, Martha
started M-squared Art Productions; a collective grounded in the four elements
of hip-hop. M-Squared integrates art and music into the party landscape of New
York City with Marthalicia's specialty in live painting.

time around, Marthalicia has taken it a step further and challenged herself by
putting together a group project whose main focus is dedicated to, “The Artists
Process”. The show will run with Photographers and Film Makers meeting at each
individual artists home. The Photographer and Film Maker will solely document
the hands and feet as the artists wake up & go about their daily routine.
This visual element will create a more dynamic approach to interpreting both
visual & sound as the artist gets ready to leave their home until they
arrive at their final location, 5 Pointz, (famous graffiti landmark in Queens).
All the artist will be documented in this similar fashion. Focusing on the feet
will represent movement and daily activities of each artist.

the beginning of this documentary, the "natural" sounds of their
daily activity will be the only thing the viewer will hear, but once the colors
are mixed onto the artists palette, the sounds will be mixed into loops and
MC's voices as each MC will provide a hook or a "line".
