Josep Martínez Lozano was born in the Born district in Barcelona on March 29th, 1923.
During his childhood he had no special inclination towards plastic arts or painting. It was not until his youth that he began to paint and definitively forge his vocation. Like so many artists of bohemian and eventful biography, he had struggle with familiar opposition to his iron will to devote himself to painting in body and soul. He tells it like this: “I told my father: I want to be a painter. He answered me: Then get out of my jouse. And I did.” Since then, he would always put painting above anything else in his life.
His first artistic studies were carried out at the Escola d'Arts i Oficis del Clot, in Barcelona (1937). There he received the first and most basic notions of drawing by the teacher Doménech Soler, from Sabadell. Later, he became a disciple of Ramón Sanvicens and Joaquim Terruella.
He served in Figueres shortly after the end of World War II, when the country was going through a difficult post-war period.
His first solo exhibition took place in Figueres, in Can Fortunet, in 1946. Faced with the praise that his paintings aroused, he acted prudently, as he was aware of the dangers of letting himself be carried away by a fame that was new to him.
During his stay in Figueres, he contacted different personalities of the cultural and artistic life of the Capital of the Empordà and it was at this time that he began his special relationship with l'Empordà and more precisely with Llançá. Among his friends at the time were the watercolorist Ramon Reig, the journalist Manuel Brunet and Josep M. Fortunet.
In 1951 he obtained a scholarship from the Provincial Council of Girona that took him to Venice. There he befriended the 19th century painter Giuseppe Quirubini, and the aesthetic emotions of the city and its canals enriched his palette. The same year, he presented himself individually in Barcelona for the first time, in Sala Gaspar, with a selection of his Venetian works. Also in 1951 he held his first exhibition in Madrid, and then established workshops in Montblanc, Tarragona and Llançà.
En Llançà he founded la Escola d'Arts i Oficis, as he had already done in Campo de Criptana in La Mancha. His relationship with Llançà is so intense from that period, that in 1988 he established there the foundation that bears his name and a museum of Watercolour, with works of his and other painters.
In 1963, Martínez Lozano participated in the Bienal de PIntura, Premi Ciutat de Terrassa. He was still a stranger in the city, and his painting were relegated to secondary hall. The painting he presents is a marina of vivid and intense colours which does not get any prize. Despite this, it does arouse the interest of collectors and painters in Terrassa.
His relationship with Terrassa began that same year, precisely at the same time as the city started its period of enormous growth and faces a great wave of immigration that will decisively transform it in a few years. Paradoxically, it is in this industrial city which was at the time surrounded by suburbs, where he found an artistic atmosphere and sensibility, as well as a core of friends, which seduced him. For all this, in 1965 he settled for good in Terrassa with his family.
From that moment he alternated his residence in Terrassa and Llançà (he used to spend half a week in the interior, and the other half by the sea), with his trips to France, Belgium, Romania, Portugal, Great Britain, Italy, Malaysia, Guatemala... Martínez Lozano inveterate traveller painter.
His first work in Terrassa is in Sant Llorenç street, relatively close to the headquarters of Amics de les Arts, an entity in which he integrated very early and which constituted the neuralgic centre of cultural life in Terrassa. Later, he moved to a larger studio, on the street which at that time bore the name of Martínez Anido. And finally, when he had to turn the workshop into a family home, he settled permanently on Teatre Street where, until recently, he still had his studio (where he used to work normally at night)
Since then, his relationship with the city has become closer and closer. He held an exhibition for the benefit of the Hospital de Sant Llàtzer, and shortly thereafter, together with Josep Boix, he published a book about the streets of Terrassa. The money he obtained was also going to the same hospital.
In May 1969 he began his famous journey from La Mancha to Terrassa, with the donkey "Sandalio", which became a small myth in the artistic life of Terrassa. In 1971 he was awarded the "Quixot" award by the local press, which distinguished his quixotic personal and artistic career. In 1972 he was awarded with the prize "Terrassenc de l'any", in recognition of his civic career.
In 1975 he made a representative donation of his pictorial work to the city. Thus, the sala Martínez Lozano is open at the Casa-Museo Alegre de Sagrera. In 1989 he made a second donation of his artistic work to the city of Terrassa.
In the same year, 1989, the Museo de la Acuarela-Fundación Martínez Lozano was created in Llançà, which initially drew upon a donation from the painter consisting of more than 100 works from different European watercolourists. At that time, it became the only museum in Europe dedicated exclusively to watercolour. In 1991, Pepe decided to organize and found the Simposiums Nacionales de Acuarela, that have been held throughout Spain (Córdoba, Montblanc, Bilbao, Jaca...).
In 2001, he made a second donation of 36 works to the Museo de la Acuarela, on the occasion of his new location in the premises of the Casa de Cultura de Llançà.
In 2004, the Reial Acadamia de Belles Arts de Sant Jordi named him academic for Llançà. During these years, he continues to alternate his life between the towns of Llançà, Montblanc and Terrassa. It is in this last city that, in 2003, he has to leave his workshop at number 8, Theatre Street; The Don Candido Hotel gives him the room 509 so he can continue his relationship with the city. In September 2005 was presented in the Diari de Terrassa, a large oil painting made expressly for the occasion at the request of different entities and personalities of the city.
J. Martínez Lozano never failed to create and investigate technique, so his oil painting or watercolours continued to evolve in such a way that his last works, made in 2005, surprised both acquaintances and strangers.
In January 2006, the Terrassa City Council appointed him as city's adopted son in a ceremony that, unknowingly was the last event he attended. On June 7th, 2006, he died of an illness in his home in Llança, surrounded by his family. Two days later, his friends bid him farewell at the church of Sant Vicenç de Llançà.
