About Gary

Gary Martin is a Cheshire-based Fine Artist, working primarily with oil paints. Growing up in the West Midlands, Gary was drawing and painting from an early age. He has always loved art. 

Since completing a Visual Arts Degree at Liverpool John Moores University, Gary spent many years working in Graphic Design and Illustration. He returned to art in 2018 whilst caring for his terminally ill mother.

The Artist Surrounded by examples of his oil paintings

Shortlisted for the SAA Artist of the Year and Visual Artists Association Open, Gary regularly exhibits at Open Art Shows and sells work through social media and his website. His art has been featured internationally in the VAA International Art Exhibition 2021 and also held in private collections in the UK. Gary is a member of the Visual Artists Association and Grosvenor Art Society.

Gary’s work continues to evolve. After experimenting with large, abstract canvases and mixed media during his degree, Gary now combines his recent studies of classical art with an expressionistic, painterly style to create a unique approach to realism.
