Raoul Martinez left formal education at the age of seventeen in order to work as an apprentice in the studio of the artist Paul Benney. Since setting up his own studio, Martinez has forged a career as a portraitist and documentary film maker. He is working towards his first solo exhibition.

Shortly before his death last year, the historian, playwright and activist, Howard Zinn, granted Martinez an interview and sitting for his ‘Creating Freedom’ project. Among Zinn’s extensive list of publications, he is probably best known as the author of A People’s History of the United States (1980).
