Memory Flags – An Impossible Typology
Judith Martinez Estrada is a Spanish/Australian artist based in The Blue Mountains, Australia. She is a PhD candidate at The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, from which she also has a Master of Philosophy in Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Design.

Judith was awarded the State Library of Victoria creative fellowship in 2019/20. She has been artist in residence at Alfred University in New York, Cicada Press in Sydney, and Megalo Print Studio in Canberra. Judith has had exhibitions in galleries, museums, art fairs and cultural institutions both in Australia and in Spain.
She has been a finalist in The Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award and The Megalo International Print Prize, highly commended in The Olive Cotton Award, and awarded the accésit prize for El Premio Internacional de Arte Gráfica Jesus Nuñez. She is represented by the Lost Bear Gallery in Katoomba.
