PAUL MARTIN

 

Paul Martin began his studies in the late 1960s at a Birmingham School of Art dominated by Abstract Expressionism, before moving to the Royal Academy whose more traditional methods focused largely on life-drawing. Neither approach proved entirely congenial, but Paul describes those years as ones of “productive disagreement”. Renowned for his innovative painterly practice, using beeswax, resins, powders, bitumen, magnesium oxide, ash and other organic materials, Paul Martin has exhibited widely both at home and abroad, and has work in the collections of The Royal Academy, The British Museum and the BBC. Over the course of his career he has garnered many awards including The British Institution Prize for Printmaking and The Royal Academy Awards for Painting and Printmaking.
