New American Paintings has joined forces with The Huffington Post‘s new Arts section to cover the work of an artist previously included in the magazine. From our list of 11 to Watch in 2011: Editor’s Picks, New York’s Eddie Martinez is definitely an artist to keep an eye on. (You might remember Eddie’s skeleton from our recent studio visit.)

Featured as the Spotlight artist in the current issue of New American Paintings, #92, Martinez caused a stir in December when his mammoth triptych at Art Basel Miami Beach for ZieherSmith sold to British mega-collector Charles Saatchi. At a staggering 8-by-28 feet, the painting is the largest ever made by the Brooklyn-based artist, whose career in the last several years has seen its own significant amplification.

We’ve included several images of recent work by Eddie below. And you can read more about him in our feature today on The Huffington Post!
