Martin Aranaydo, An Artist At Heart

Martin Aranaydo is a mixed media artist with a strong focus on painting.  A descendant of Native American and Philippino dissidents, his work navigates the universes he walks in.  He has made art in Oakland, San Francisco, and many American cities for a lifetime and has written graffiti for 20 years as a protégé of the late Mike “Dream” Francisco.  Martin’s work can be seen on Bay Area walls, in protests and direct actions across the US and Canada. 

Martin lives and paints in Oakland, and is soon moving to Hawaii to contribute to the freedom struggle of the Hawaiian people. He will be missed.
