Juliana Martinez
Mosiac, signed by the artist and Stephen Stills.

Inspired by the music and spirit of Buffalo Springfield.

"Buffalo Springfield was a 'thinking hippy's' band. Here is a group of guys making amazing music that not only has a message, but delivers a challenge to the 1960s establishment," notes Juliana Martinez. "I tried to include identifiable images on the guitar. The peace flag speaks for itself, but there are also maple leaves on a white background, in homage to Canadian Neil Young. There is a large bluebird, the name of one of their hits. The flower border can also be found around the perimeter of their second album, Buffalo Springfield Again, and it also represents a Southern influence. The neck says 'For What it's Worth' -- we all know what that is—and the large 'Stop' pays tribute to the same song."

Juliana Martinez is originally from Puerto Rico but grew up in Los Angeles. She created her first mosaic at age 9 and was hooked. She currently creates public art pieces and accepts private commissions. This is her second contribution to the GuitarTown on the Sunset Strip art project. In 2010 she created a mosaic guitar celebrating the "Summer of Love."
