Acrylic on board
Martins background is in graphics and has been since the mid 80s. Art had always been a hobby but deep down he wanted to be a recognised artist.
Not being a professional artist gave him the freedom not to be afraid to try new things out over the years, trying different techniques, styles, imagery etc. He decided to use the different materials by starting in pencil and then pen, then when he was happy he finished in oil pastels. Then it was recommended to him to use acrylic on board. Once I did the first piece of artwork I was hooked and have been painting in this style and technique ever since.
Based in Bournemouth Martin is now a very successful artist, showing in galleries across the country.
