Martinez makes a difference

oraida Martinez ’81, the artist and designer known for her unique painting style which she calls Verdadism, has been honored by La Tribuna Newspaper of New Jersey and New York as one of New Jersey’s distinguished women of 1996.

Verdadism is the hybrid word Martinez derived from combining the Spanish word for truth and the English word for theory to describe her art. It’s “hard-edge abstraction with social commentary,” she says. “In order to be happy, Ihave to paint. [My paintings] embody what I feel. [Through them] I try to make change, open people’s minds.”

She was recognized for her socially-conscious philosophy and the difference that she is making toward promoting tolerance, understanding and respect for all people.
Martinez runs her own graphic design firm and gallery in Moorestown.

Rowan Magazine featured Soraida Martinez and her art in the fall 1995 issue.

from spring ’97
