Dylan Martorell is an interdisciplinary Melbourne-based artist. His art manifests in a range of forms from traditional pencil and ink drawings to sound and sculpture-based installations. Martorell’s practice is inspired by elements of the natural world as well as explorations of global cultures, often juxtaposing tradition with contemporary found objects. His work typically involves a highly disciplined and refined level of detail, intertwined with ad hoc improvisation and a bowerbird aesthetic.
Martorell has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally over the past decade. Select solo exhibitions include: Hazrat Prototypes, Utopian Slumps, Melbourne (2013); D’ameublement, curated by Francis E. Parker, Switchback Gallery, Monash University, Gipplsand (2012); Agaues de Marco, Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne (2011); Duppy Musique Povera, Object Gallery, Sydney (2011); Musique Povera, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne (2010); Roda Roda Soundsystem, streets of Yogyakarta (2011); Splintered Guilders, Lamington Drive, Melbourne (2009); Stolon Tonals, Black and Blue, Kraton, RoomMate Gallery, Yogyakarta (2010); Umbel Ballits, Craft Victoria, Melbourne (2008); Hinterdact I and II, Über Gallery, Melbourne (2008); Panter Cluster Rimbone, Utopian Slumps, Melbourne (2007).
