Biography from Askart.com:
Martin Eichinger was born in Michigan in 1949.  His father was a graphic artist but he would say that his 7th grade teacher was the person who inspired his interest in art.  After studying design and anatomy at Ferris State University in Michigan, Martin Eichinger did post graduate work in sculpture at Michigan State University, as well as pursuing independent studies of classical sculpture in Europe.  He does not refer to himself as a figurative sculptor, despite his obvious understanding of human anatomy. "I am a narrative artist. The language I use is form and anatomy, but what I try to sculpt is romantic, emotional and perhaps mythic art."  His sculptures are evidence of a visionary artist who has something positive and eternal to say with his talent.

Eichinger has produced several bodies of work that explore different life experiences. The works are grouped into five series: Duet Series, Dream Series, Exotic Women Series, Goddess Series, and Passage Series. In the Duet Series he examines the nature of loving, committed relationships.  The Passage Series deals with transcendence, the ability and strength to move beyond difficult times. The stories depicted in each of these sculptures are more than simple narratives; they contain opinions, and lead to conclusions. "I want my sculptures to be mythological in that they speak to others who, like me, are formulating new values and are looking for a new sense of meaning in art and in life".

In Eichinger's mind, the sculptures he creates are alive.  Each piece has a personality, a unique story, a hint of tragedy, a wink of humor, or a glimpse into his personal philosophy.  His sculptures are poised at the brink of possibility while maintaining their sense of grace. Next to his sculpting, Eichinger's passion is rock climbing.  This comes through in his designs, as well as his stone like patinas.

Martin Eichinger is a professional member of the National Sculpture Society and has won numerous competitions and awards for his bronze sculptures, including the C. Perceival Dietsch award for "Best Sculpture in the Round".  Most notably, he has received a Kellogg Internship and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.  In addition, Eichinger and his bronze circus were guests of Prince Rainier of Monaco at Festival International du Cirque. Today Eichinger's bronze sculptures are represented by more than 20 galleries nationwide and housed in many prestigious private and corporate collections.

Eichinger has been actively involved in the development of artist's communities in the Pacific Northwest.  He was one of the founding members of the Pacific Northwest Sculpture Association. He has offered classes and workshops on the techniques of figurative sculpting to people of all ages.  Martin Eichinger's interest in art educating and the promotion of art are an integral part of his work, philosophy and life.
