Martyn is one of the UK’s leading abstract painters and printmakers. He studied at Hertfordshire and Brighton Colleges of Art, graduating with an MA in 1975. He has exhibited throughout the UK, France, Spain and the USA; and his work is in numerous public and private collections throughout the world. In 1997, Martyn’s work was the subject of a major travelling retrospective exhibition launched at the Russell Cotes Gallery in Bournemouth.
Martyn lives in Dorset, and his drawings, paintings and prints are inspired by the sea and coastal landscape. Through the dynamic application of layers of vibrant colour, including stunning blues, oranges and reds, Martyn evocatively captures the mood and sensation of a particular place.
