Martin moved to Brighton in 2015, returning to his home county Sussex after several years in Cornwall and has created his latest collection by drawing inspiration from the vibrancy and inevitable decay of this busy seaside town.
In 2002 Martin moved to Cornwall to study BA Spatial Design at Falmouth College of arts and instantly fell in love with the Cornish landscape and lifestyle and subsequently stayed there for another 12 years.
A keen traveller, Martin finds inspiration wherever he goes. Always collecting photos and sketches, Martin sorts through these once be has returned to his studio in Brighton and uses them as reference pictures to create the following paintings. There will be scenes from India, Tanzania, China and Morocco with hopefully plenty more to be added.
