“The positive power of art: When it celebrates life, when its healing power is set free, when it is able to enchant the heart.” – Marty Eichinger.
Martin Eichinger is an American sculptor. Deemed one of the few ‘Living Masters’ by the Art Renewal Center. Eichinger is known for his bronze narrative sculptures that, as he puts it, “chronicle the eternal human pursuit of meaning, happiness, and growth.” Eichinger has been sculpting for over 20 years and is represented by many elite galleries across the country. Eichinger began his artistic career by earning an Associate Degree at Ferris State University in commercial design in 1969. He then went on to earn a BA in Advertising at Florida State University and finally, to study sculpture at Michigan State University. After his post-graduate work at Michigan State, Eichinger pursued independent studies of classical sculpture in Europe.
In 2010, Marty was elected Fellow of the National Sculpture Society. He has been a member of the Society since 2004. His work is represented by more fine art galleries throughout the United States and is included in over 1,000 private and corporate collections around the world.
Marty’s narrative sculptures reflect mythic concepts, storytelling, emotion, and the human spirit.
“My attention has shifted to a renewed interest in human emotions, contemporary mythic storytelling and particularly in the refinement of my skills, as much as I am able to capture that elusive quality called ‘beauty.’”
Figurative sculptures and dream-like narratives have been the expression of Martin Eichinger’s thoughts for over 30 years. There is, however, another thread that unites many of his creations. He is also fascinated with science and our relationships on a much larger, cultural, even cosmic scale.
