Martín Revolo (Shulka) born in Lima, Peru , based in SF, CA.


Self-assertion and an expression of principle with the connections between his art and early life, for artist Martín Revolo, the inner necessity is still the basis and source of nourishment for his art.


Martín resides in all of his work; Though each viewer may take a different meaning from his images, all have experienced a part of
the narrative that is the artist himself.  It is not the aesthetics of the image that define his style, but rather the ability to unmask the
 “personal mythologies” of both the artist and the viewer; Such narratives can be intimate, ironic, or detached, but they are always
thoughtfully incorporated into his work.

...My work travels through an experimental release of spontaneous energy as I consider the experience as art, and the physical object the result of the journey. This experimentation opens new technical and conceptual processes that push the boundaries of traditional photography, painting and printmaking, while also attempting to tell a story through imagery that is both real and surreal. The story continues to grow as I rely on my conscious and subconscious to create and transfer those thoughts to an image, for it is from that process that I find myself being most present.
