Wilma Fan Art by Jim Sheely

Seattle artist Jim Sheely, has contributed a diverse number of art inspired by Wilma, each done in a different style. I cannot recommend enough that you check out his work here and his Etsy store. Just look at the carving he did of lovely Ms. Martinez! I have a dream to own a ten foot totem pole done by this artist to some day have in my backyard.

New Wilma Photo…Suppositories Reforming

Wilma will be featured in a big story which comes out in Baltimore OUTLoud on Friday, just in time for Baltimore Pride–so be sure to grab a copy! She will mostly be discussing her 70s punk band, The Suppositories and plans for her musical future with the reformed band. Here’s one of the incredible photos I took of her recently to help promote The Suppositories.

I’ve got some recent photos of Wilma promoting her newly reformed band The Suppositories and they are great. Until I post them, here is an old flyer from one of their Max’s Kansas City shows.

Wilma Stencil Art

Stencil artist extraordinaire, Adriano Paulino, of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, has created several stunning Wilma Martinez stencils which will soon be seen around Baltimore and featured in the Wilma exhibit at Artscape this summer.

Adriano has created stencils of countless icons such as Mick Jagger, Marilyn Monroe, Bridget Bardot, Andy Warhol and many, many more. His work adds an important dimension to this Wilma exhibit and illustrates the broad influence that she has had on so many levels of our cultural landscape.

Wilma Martinez: The Muse

Baltimore artist Nicole Wittelsburger has submitted a nice portrait of Wilma. I think the artist captured the demure glamour and intensity of Wilma nicely.  It’s always interesting to see the power that Wilma has over other artists and how she can function as a muse to so many people with diverse talents and styles.
